What is most valuable?

The main feature for us is that the tools are all in one place and that you don't have to bother with the backend system and the infrastructure.

How has it helped my organization?

We tried to save costs by cutting some unnecessary operational things in the infrastructure and in the backend.

What needs improvement?

As we were not able to calculate the amount of traffic and the bandwidth, we were not able to calculate the pricing accurately. There was no way of knowing how the rise in… more»

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

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 pricing for the… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We are using Mircosoft Azure in parallel with Google Firebase.

What other advice do I have?

It's a good product for prototyping, with a nice interface and is easy to work with, but difficult to predict the cost. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate other options, including AWS, and one more platform based in Python.

What is most valuable?

I found the flexibility of handling and dealing with the database through EDL to be very useful.

What needs improvement?

Their technical support needs to be enhanced with more support for customers. They should also improve the monitoring and control for the database to monitor the performance and fine-tuning of the database itself. Automatic detection of potential errors or failures in the database would also be very… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I was mainly using Oracle Database, which has different concepts for different scenarios, to some extent. Since it's one year old, it's tough to move to the Firebase Database. I have had a good experience in both Google and Oracle environments and I also have had good experiences in Google… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Firebase as eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

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

How has it helped my organization?

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

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.

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.

What do you think of Google Firebase?

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case is the documentation.

How has it helped my organization?

Firebase is awesome and easy to use. It is a database without any schema from the client-side. Additionally, it has security rules to control database read/write operations in real-time.

What is most valuable?

Information stored in the cloud and readily available everywhere. The big power of their the data host.

What needs improvement?

Firebase uses JSON, and the storage format is very different to that of SQL. This does not allow for easy migrations.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

How is customer service and technical support?

The support team is responsive and well-informed.
