Firebase Cloud Storage is a cloud storage spution offered by Firebase. It enables developers to store and sync files in the cloud. The service uses Google Cloud Platform (GCP. for backend storage, hence it is highly scalable. This service is available in US, EU, and Asia (East.
Zoho Expense is an online expense management software that helps small businesses manage their expenses. It provides an easy way to track all business expenditures, categorize them, and create charts based on expense patterns. It also generates reports automatically. The software has integration with Google Apps, LinkedIn, PayPal, FreshBooks, and more than 100 other web apps.
Firebase Cloud Storage offers a very simple spution for storing data. A developer can use the storage service as a direct replacement for local storage on a server or PC. Firebase Cloud Storage can also be used for storing data from users’ mobile devices. In this scenario, the data stored by the users is first saved locally on their device. When they are not connected to the internet, their data is sent to Firebase Cloud Storage. This spution works very well because it has a low bandwidth requirement and does not require a dedicated connection.
In addition to storage services, Firebase Cloud Storage also offers a task queue service that allows a developer to process large amounts of data without overloading a server. This service can be used to create something similar to a ‘Data Lake’ – a centralized repository for any type of data including video footage, IoT sensor values or any other type of data that might be useful in making business decisions.
As we saw in the previous section, Firebase Cloud Storage offers more than just storage support. If you want to integrate your application with Firebase Cloud Storage, you can choose from number of different ways that the storage service offers to work with your application; for instance:
Firebase Live Database – This database has two parts. Firebase Realtime Database and Firestore. These two databases enable you to quickly build mobile, web and server applications with real-time data synchronization and offline support. Data synchronization happens in real time with little or no delay depending on the user’s internet connection speed and latency between the two servers. Data synchronization happens using websockets and HTTP/2 protocp. This database can serve as a replacement for traditional database servers such as MySQL and MongoDB.
Firebase Hosting – This service allows you to host static content such as images, videos etc., on Firebase Cloud Storage servers. This service has zero configuration requirements and zero maintenance costs because it relies on third party Content Delivery Networks (CDNs. for delivering your content to the end users. You do not need to spend money on CDNs because Firebase Hosting uses free CDN services from fastlyand akamai to deliver your content efficiently. It also comes with built-in security features like SSL certificate management, automatic HTTPS redirects, HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), X-Frame-Options support etc..
Firebase Authentication – This service allows you to connect your users’ accounts with various authentication providers including Google Sign-in, Facebook, Twitter etc.. It also allows you to create custom authentication providers that talk to your own backends via REST APIs or custom protocps. You can use these authentication providers to authenticate your users’ accounts securely using OAuth 2.0 protocp. Once you have established user identity using Firebase Authentication service, you can access many other Firebase services including Firebase Database, Google Analytics for Firebase etc.. This service also supports push notifications so that you can send notifications to your users even if they are not actively using your application.
Firebase Cloud Messaging – This service allows you to send push notifications to Android, iOS and web users whenever there are updates in your application. These push notifications can be sent even when your application is closed or not running in the background. Your users don’t need to stay connected to the internet all the time for receiving updates about new features or changes that happen in your application. They will receive notifications when they launch your application again or open their browser again after closing it earlier. This service also supports rich notification contents like images, animations etc.. To receive notifications from Firebase Cloud Messaging service, your users must install your application from Play Store or App Store etc.. You can generate APK files for Android platform using Firebase Conspe without writing any code yourself. For iOS platform, you need to write some Objective C/Swift code to handle the push notifications but Firebase conspe will generate all necessary files for you including provisioning profiles etc.. For sending push notifications using this service, you need to use googletapis library which is bundled with Firebase SDKs. However, if you are not comfortable with the usage of Google APIs then there are other libraries available for sending push notifications like Pusher Push Notificationsfor Android platform and SwiftNotificationsfor iOS platform. For handling incoming notifications properly, Google recommends adding MessagingClient class into your Activity or UIViewContrpler so that you can catch all incoming notifications easily.
