Google Firebase Review

Has fast updates, good performance and realtime chat

What is our primary use case?

We use Firebase on-premise. Our primary use cases are for push notifications and for realtime chat.

How has it helped my organization?

I'm really happy with the performance and with what it gives us. 

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature I like is that it is in realtime. Updates are also very fast. 

What needs improvement?

We use Firebase for media processing and we are growing more. As we grow, the pricing goes up and it's high compared to competitors. The solution is expensive. 

In the next release, they should focus more on realtime features. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Firebase for one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's stable. Stability and the performance are really good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have plans to expand it across the organization. 

How are customer service and technical support?

I never had to contact their technical support. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Licensing costs are on a monthly basis. 

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a seven and a half out of ten. Not a ten because I haven't explored every facet to it. I am very happy with what I have seen so far.
