Datastore

Being deprecated for Firestore

Cloud Firestore is the next generation of Cloud Datastore.

Comparisons with AWS

  • API Gateway

    • No GCP Equivalent

    • Custom domains have to go through Firebase Hosting

    • GCP Cloud Functions can be automatically deployed to an endpoint with a flag

  • Firestore has better free rates

    • No on-demand/provisioned limitations

  • Lambda

    • Need to test async/await

    • Seems you launch individual functions than a group of functions

      • Lambda has "Applications", GCP doesn't seem to have an equivalent way to group

      • Potentially more name clashing

    • Distinct difference between HTTP Triggers and Event Triggers
