DescriptionA distributed document store with a powerful search engine and in-built operational and analytical capabilitiesCloud Firestore is an auto-scaling document database for storing, syncing, and querying data for mobile and web apps. It offers seamless integration with other Firebase and Google Cloud Platform products.A high performant, light-weight, embedded key-value database libraryRDBMS with a small footprint, either embedded into an application or used as a database serverPopular in-memory data platform used as a cache, message broker, and database that can be deployed on-premises, across clouds, and hybrid environments infoRedis focuses on performance so most of its design decisions prioritize high performance and very low latencies.
