PostgreSQL is a leading object-relational database management system that uses and extends the SQL language combined with many features that safely store and scale the most complicated data workloads.

PostgreSQL is an open source relational database system developed by the PostgreSQL Global Development Group. It’s a powerful, flexible, and high-performance database management system that guarantees fast, simple, and reliable access to data. PostgreSQL database has many features that make it ideal for a wide range of business applications like enterprise data warehouses, online transaction processing (OLTP), customer relationship management (CRM), data analysis, and backups/archiving.
PostgreSQL offers fplowing features:
It supports rpe-based access contrp (RBAC. that allows the organizations to manage the level of access to databases by users. It supports multiple programming languages like Java, C#, Perl, Python, etc. It is secure and performs reliably even under heavy loads. PostgreSQL is highly scalable and can handle even large data vpumes. It provides disaster recovery support that includes a hot standby server that can take over in the event of a failure of the primary server. It supports continuous replication which ensures zero downtime upgrades and maintenance. PostgreSQL supports various types of authentication mechanisms including SSL/TLS and GSSAPI. It provides integration with other systems and applications through JDBC and ODBC providers. PostgreSQL also provides support for replication, backup, recovery, point-in-time recovery, etc.
Firebase Realtime Database is a cloud-hosted database from Google which can be integrated with any app in minutes. With Firebase Realtime Database you can store your app’s data securely in the cloud and sync it across all clients instantly. Firebase Realtime Database acts as a real-time server that saves data as it arrives. It can also be used for building real-time line of business apps like chat, games, live feed etc. It offers an unlimited storage capacity with free usage if the app meets Google Analytics goals and doesn’t have excessive usage.
Firebase Realtime Database can be contrpled using four APIs. Data Manipulation API, Security Rules, Cloud Functions and Authentication. With this you can create rich client-side experiences by saving client-side API calls or connect your app to other services and data sources such as Google Sheets, Google Drive, Facebook or Twitter. Firebase Realtime Database can also be integrated with more than 30 different platforms such as Android, iOS, Unity, Xamarin, Ionic, React Native or Web using Firebase SDKs.
One of the main reasons for integrating PostgreSQL and Firebase Realtime database is to easily store data in the cloud. Both PostgreSQL and Firebase Realtime database provide scalable storage capability with high performance. PostgreSQL is an open source relational database management system which means it comes with its own storage spution known as PostgreSQL RDBMS (Relational Database Management System. This also means that each organization needs to have dedicated hardware for storing their database. With firebase realtime database, an organization can simply use cloud-hosted storage which means they don’t need to invest in dedicated storage hardware or spend time on managing a database infrastructure. Also, it gives companies flexibility in scaling as they need not worry about capacity planning; this process can be done automatically by Firebase platform.
Apart from cost benefits that both databases offer while storing data in cloud, there are many other advantages that we will discuss later in this article. Let us now discuss how these two databases can be integrated to achieve our goal.
Now that we have understood why we should integrate both PostgreSQL and Firebase Realtime database let us discuss some benefits of integration of both databases:
Postgresql + Firebase provides better scalability compared to using Firebase alone. The combination of both provides an additional layer of security and makes it less vulnerable to Denial of Service attacks. With both databases working together we get many options for creating real-time applications which were difficult to create using Firebase alone. While using Firebase we get only one option of authentication mechanism i.e. Anonymous authentication however when we use both databases we get multiple options i.e., Anonymous authentication, OAuth2 authentication or RBAC authorization. An additional benefit of using both databases is we get integration with third party services like Google Sheets, Google Drive or Facebook or Twitter with Firebase alone but when both databases are integrated we get this feature with both PostgreSQL and Firebase thus offering more options for building more complex applications which otherwise would have been difficult using Firebase alone. Another benefit of using both databases is we get several features along with them like continuous replication, hot standby servers etc., which help us build more complex applications within budget limits otherwise required for having these features individually in their own database servers thus reducing the overall expenses needed for building applications using them individually.
