DescriptionHigh speed key-value store, desgined for high availability, mission critical applications with automatic recovery and immediately consistent transaction support.Database built for IoT edge computing, which runs natively on ARM or x86 processors and on major IoT operating systems.Cloud 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.Full-featured RDBMS with a small footprint, either embedded into a Java application or used as a database server.In-memory data structure store, used as database, cache and message broker infoRedis focuses on performance so most of its design decisions prioritize high performance and very low latencies.
