What is Cloud Firestore?

Google Cloud Firestore is a flexible, scalable, cloud-native database for mobile, web, and server development. Cloud Firestore is available in native Node.js, Java, Python, and Go SDKs, in addition to REST and RPC APIs.

With Google Cloud Firestore, you can easily build serverless applications. When you don’t need to set up a server to access your data, you can quickly create app prototypes, MVPs, or even get the production system up and running within a short period of time.

The Cloud Firestore data model supports flexible, hierarchical data structures. This means that the database stores your data in documents which contain field mappings to values. These documents are stored in collections, which you can use to organize your data and build queries.

Cloud Firestore uses data synchronization to instantly update the data on any connected device. At the same time, Cloud Firestore allows for running simple, one-time fetch queries efficiently.

Cloud Firestore is the next major version of Cloud Datastore and it remains compatible with Cloud Datastore databases if you have used it in your project already. Cloud Firestore can even work in Datastore mode, keeping the original behavior. However, once you switch to the native Firestore mode, you immediately get the access to all the latest Firestore features, including:

  • A new, strongly consistent storage layer
  • A collection and document data model
  • Real-time updates
  • Mobile and Web client libraries
  • Multiregional data replication
  • Multi-document transactions
