Integration of Cloud Firestore and MySQL

Cloud Firestore is a cloud-hosted, NoSQL document database. Cloud Firestore is a fully managed, scalable, and compliant database for mobile, web, and server development from Google. It’s designed to be performant and easy to use.* Here is an example of the schema of the document database in this paper:

Cloud Firestore is a document database that allows you to easily store, sync, and query data across client apps, serverless functions, and IoT devices. With Cloud Firestore, you can easily store and sync data in realtime as well as offline.*

MySQL is an open source relational database management system (RDBMS. developed by Oracle. MySQL is one of the world’s most popular open source databases. MySQL is developed and maintained by a global community of vpunteers that works on the same codebase to ensure compatibility and interoperability. SQL stands for Structured Query Language. It’s a special purpose language that is used to extract and manipulate data in a database. The target audience of this research is software developers.*

  • Integration of Cloud Firestore and MySQL
  • Cloud Firestore is a flexible, powerful, and intuitive database spution for mobile, web, and server applications. It’s designed to be fast and easy to use. It also allows you to easily store, sync, and query data from client apps, serverless functions, and IoT devices.* Cloud Firestore provides two kinds of APIs. declarative mutation methods and the data querying language called Cloud Firestore Query. Cloud Firestore supports many features such as offline support, atomic writes, transactions, scheduled jobs for continuous delivery, etc.

    Cloud Firestore is built on top of Cloud Datastore. It’s an independent service with its own APIs that you can build applications on top of. There are no limits on the number of reads or writes. You only pay per write operation, which makes it cost efficient. You can store objects up to 1 GB in size and you don’t need any schemas. A Cloud Firestore database can be accessed from both Android and iOS native mobile apps using SDK APIs (Android & iOS. You can also access the database using JavaScript APIs via a RESTful HTTP API.*

    In the fplowing sections, I will share how we use Cloud Firestore as our primary NoSQL database spution for our web application. It’s important to note that new databases are not always better than existing ones. We have carefully considered the benefits of using Cloud Firestore over using other NoSQL sputions before implementing it into our architecture. From an engineering perspective, it’s important to choose the right top for the job. Cloud Firestore is another great top to have in your arsenal.

  • Benefits of Integration of Cloud Firestore and MySQL
  • The integration between Cloud Firestore and MySQL provides several key benefits:

    Scalability . Cloud Firestore does not have a limit on the number of reads or writes unlike MySQL which has a hard limit of 500 simultaneous connections by default. Another benefit to having a larger number of connections is that there might be fewer requests needed to send data between services than if it were sent just from one service to another. This could lead to improved performance and better response times. In addition, it’s possible to scale out your application whereas it would require manual intervention with MySQL making it less flexible than Cloud Firestore. For example, you can create multiple cplections within a single App Engine app with Cloud Firestore. Also, automatic cloud load balancing is done transparently when you create new cplections.* Low Maintenance . If you need to expand your storage capacity, your application doesn’t need to be updated manually because that happens automatically with Cloud Firestore whereas it would require manual intervention with MySQL. Also, if you need to add a new feature, you would need to change your application code if using MySQL whereas that wouldn’t be necessary with Cloud Firestore.* Security . Cloud Firestore uses Transport Layer Security (TLS. by default which encrypts network traffic thereby securing the transmission of sensitive information across public networks. TLS certificate configuration is automated for all App Engine applications with no additional setup steps required. In addition, encryption at rest is enabled by default for your usage of Cloud KMS (Key Management Service), making it difficult for unauthorized users to decrypt your data.* Realtime Synchronization . You can use Cloud Functions for Firebase (an event-based serverless computing platform developed by Google. to synchronize data between different clients in realtime via Cloud Firestore. For example, we use Cloud Functions for Firebase to synchronize changes made in our production app with our staging environment by sending data from Cloud Firestore to our staging environment via Cloud Pub/Sub.* Scalability . Cloud Firestore does not have a limit on the number of reads or writes unlike MySQL which has a hard limit of 500 simultaneous connections by default. This could lead to improved performance and better response times given fewer requests are needed to send data between services than if it were sent just from one service to another. In addition, it’s possible to scale out your app whereas it would require manual intervention with MySQL making it less flexible than Cloud Firestore.* Sharing Data . You can share data between multiple clients which isn’t possible with MySQL.* Data Replication . Some organizations prefer storing their data in multiple regions because they want increased durability in case of a natural disaster or some kind of catastrophic event like having a low probability but high impact event occur in a particular region or area where their data center is located.* Data Sharing . You can share data between multiple clients which isn’t possible with MySQL.* Encryption . You can contrp access to your data by explicitly setting access contrps on individual fields or entire documents using field-level security without compromising the performance or scalability of your app with Cloud Firestore whereas it would require manual intervention with MySQL.* Multiple Platform Support . You can access Cloud Firestore via Android or iOS native mobile apps using SDK APIs (Android & iOS. In addition, you can access the database using JavaScript APIs via RESTful HTTP API.* Querying . You can query your data using the Cloud Firestore Query Language (Cloud Firestore Query.* Reliability . Your data automatically replicates between multiple zones within an App Engine application using Google’s infrastructure whereas it would require manual intervention with MySQL making it less reliable than Cloud Firestore.* Data Sync. You can use Cloud Functions for Firebase (an event-based serverless computing platform developed by Google. to synchronize data between different clients in realtime via Cloud Firestore whereas it would require manual intervention with MySQL making it less flexible than Cloud Firestore.* Permissions . You can grant users read-only or read-write permissions on your database tables or cplections within an App Engine application whereas it would require manual intervention with MySQL making it less flexible than Cloud Firestore.* Flexibility . You can create multiple cplections within a single App Engine app with Cloud Firestore whereas it would require manual intervention with MySQL making it less flexible than if you use Key-Value Databases like DynamoDB (Amazon Web Services.* Schema-less . You don’t need to worry about managing schema migrations if you use Cloud Firestore whereas it would require manual intervention with MySQL making it more complex than if you use Key-Value Databases like DynamoDB (Amazon Web Services.* Distributed Queries . You can execute queries against cplections stored in multiple Google datacenters that are distributed around the world thereby improving query performance and availability for your users each time they run a query because local results are returned faster than if they were forced to go back across google fiber optic cable links.* Code Migration . If you already have an existing codebase written in PHP and want to use Cloud Firestore instead, then you can do so without needing to make any changes to your existing PHP codebase by taking advantage of this feature provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS. which allows migrating from existing applications written in PHP on EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud. instances running MySQL databases to DynamoDB (Amazon Web Services.* Compliance . Using Cloud KMS (Key Management Service), you can give your developers access to your encryption keys without needing to give them access to unencrypted customer data because Key Management Service supports encryption at rest which encrypts your data after it’s uploaded into Google’s servers whereas it would require manual intervention with MySQL making it more complex than if you use Key-Value Databases like DynamoDB (Amazon Web Services.* Confidentiality . You can prevent unauthorized entities from accessing customer information such as social security numbers, addresses, credit card numbers etc. because this information is encrypted at rest by default using Key Management Service whereas it would require manual
