The Realtime Database feature is the most important for us since we are able to see changes in the database the moment they are happening.The user interface is very good and easy to navigate.The most valuable feature I like is about the realtime. Updates are also very fast.I found the flexibility of handling and dealing with database through EDL to be very useful.The main feature for us is that the tools are all in one place and that you don't need to bother with the backend system and the infrastructure.It has security rules to control database read/write operations in real-time.

I would like to have a facility for testing possible scenarios by writing dummy data and then doing different queries.The cold start-up of the cloud function needs to speed up. For me personally, I'm not experienced in anything there, however, I've just read online it's a problem.We use Firebase for media processing and we are growing more. As we grow, the pricing goes high and it's high compared to competitors. The solution is expensive.Their technical support needs to be enhanced with more support for customers.There was no way of knowing how the rise in traffic would impact the price.Firebase uses JSON, and the storage format is very different to that of SQL. This does not allow for easy migrations.
