It has security rules to control database read/write operations in real-time

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.

We use this technology to build mobile applications and to communicate with our back-end infrastructure.

Pros and Cons

  • "Allows us to create functions without any infrastructure apart from the Google App Engine."
  • "Google Cloud Functions (which is still a BETA version) needs to have more control over the uploaded functions. That is, it needs more options for controlling the functions itself."

What other advice do I have?

I would say that they should go ahead with Google App Engine and Google Firebase.
