More DigitalOcean Pros »

"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.""I found the flexibility of handling and dealing with database through EDL to be very useful.""The most valuable feature I like is about the realtime. Updates are also very fast.""The user interface is very good and easy to navigate.""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.""If there's data added to the solution, there's a good record of it so it's easy to track everything.""What I like most about Google Firebase is that it's one of the easier options to host a website or app quickly."

Cons
"I think something needs to be done in terms of technical support."

More DigitalOcean Cons »

"There was no way of knowing how the rise in traffic would impact the price.""Their technical support needs to be enhanced with more support for customers.""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.""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.""I would like to have a facility for testing possible scenarios by writing dummy data and then doing different queries.""The solution needs to offer capabilities to work offline. Like Firestore, we should be able to do insertion, updating, and deletion offline.""I would like to see faster data migration and some support for other languages in the next release."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The program is cheaper than others."

More DigitalOcean Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It is not easy to calculate the cost per copy, use or if the load rose dramatically we did not know how that would impact the final price.""The monthly cost is based on writing data and queries to the database.""The pricing component is a bit confusing when it comes to what exactly you'll pay for, but I wouldn't say it's expensive."
