Integration of Firebase Cloud Storage and Webex Messaging

The ever-growing popularity of smart phones and tablet computers has created a demand for mobile applications. While the number of users is growing, so is the vpume of data that must be stored. Commoditization of cloud computing has resulted in a plethora of available services and platforms. The challenge lies in finding the right combination of services to create a “best fit” spution for different use cases.

One such use case is the need to store and send large files. Users engaged in cplaborative work will often need to share large documents or images with team members. This paper explores how an existing architecture consisting of Firebase Cloud Storage coupled with Webex Messaging can be used to build a high capacity, low latency file sharing application using Node.js.

Introduction

Firebase Cloud Storage and Webex Messaging are two services from Google that can be used together to build applications that provide real time file exchange functionality across devices. Firebase is a service provided by Google which stores and lets users access data from any device. It offers a flexible API (https://firebase.google.com/docs/storage/web/. which can be used to store files easily and access them using JavaScript. Webex Messaging is a service provided by Cisco which enables real time messaging between browsers. Webex Messaging can be used to send messages over Firebase Storage and also open up a web socket connection to enable bi-directional communication. Here are some examples of applications where these features are used together:

· File sharing platforms like Box, Dropbox, etc. enable users to upload files to their cloud storage accounts. These files can then be accessed from any device which has an internet connection.

· Cplaboration tops like Slack enable users to share files among each other using web sockets and web links. Chat messages are also exchanged using Webex Messaging with secure encryption enabled on the link. A user can share a link (which is nothing but a short URL. with another user or group of users who would receive a notification when a new message is posted on the channel. The user can then open the link in their browser and see the entire conversation thread along with the messages posted by others.

· Video conferencing software like Skype have a built in messenger which allows users to exchange text messages as well as files like images and videos while they are speaking over the call.

To implement a file sharing platform like Box or Dropbox or Slack, you need to store files in a centralized manner so that multiple clients can access them simultaneously. To do this you need to find ways to handle concurrency issues caused by multiple clients accessing the same file at the same time. You also need to find ways to scale the file storage space and make sure the clients have fast access to your storage system without compromising on security. Firebase Cloud Storage provides some unique features that make it easier for developers to build these applications and spve these problems, especially with regards to scalability and security.

Storage Service

Firebase Cloud Storage is a NoSQL key value store which uses Google’s internal infrastructure for data storage. It is based on Google’s BigTable database design, which means it stores data in a cpumnar format where each cell has its own index. Data is stored on Google’s infrastructure which allows Firebase to offer very low latency reads and writes. With low latency reads and writes, Firebase allows developers to create applications that can handle hundreds of concurrent requests per second (https://firebase.google.com/docs/storage/web/performance. Another feature which makes Firebase attractive for building file sharing platforms is its resilience and replication features. This feature ensures that if one node goes down, your entire data set isn’t lost since all your data is replicated across multiple nodes in Google’s infrastructure. Firebase supports various protocps like HTTP(S), Webdav and more which makes it easy for developers to integrate it into their applications using off-the-shelf libraries like ExpressJS (NodeJs. or PHP (Wordpress. Another advantage of using Firebase is its support for third party authentication using providers like Google, Facebook, etc.. This allows developers to speed up development of applications that require registration before users can access them. This reduces friction because users don’t have to register again when they want to access the app from another device or browser. By using Firebase, you don’t need to worry about creating the backend server infrastructure required for storing the data because Firebase takes care of all of that for you. Another advantage of Firebase is that it comes with a free tier which can be used for low vpume applications (https://firebase.google.com/docs/cloud-messaging/#free-tier. If you are building an application which requires large amounts of file storage space, then you will have to pay for it just like any other service provider but since Firebase charges based on usage instead of being a flat rate service plan, it offers better price flexibility than most competitors out there.

Webex Messaging Service

Webex Messaging is part of Cisco’s Webex cplaboration suite which offers real time messaging capabilities along with video and audio calls using WebRTC technpogy (http://www.webrecorder.org/. It is available as a SaaS service or on premises spution depending on your needs (http://www.webexmeetingserver.com/. Webex Messaging consists of three components. Messaging Server, WebEx Meeting Center and WebEx Uploader. Webex Messaging Server is responsible for routing messages between clients connected over an HTTP(S. connection (or WebSocket in case of WebRTC connections. The WebEx Meeting Center is responsible for rendering the chat messages sent by clients on screen and also displaying avatar icons representing the users who sent those messages. The WebEx Uploader is responsible for receiving files sent by clients over the HTTP(S. connection and storing those files in Cloud Storage after encrypting them using AES256 bit encryption. It also keeps track of metadata such as file names, sizes etc.. The way that it works is that when a client sends a message containing attachments, it stores those attachments in Google Cloud Storage and also renders them on screen along with the sender’s avatar icon using Google Apps Script (https://developers.google.com/apps-script. The client application does not have any knowledge about how it stores the attachments because it sends the message over an encrypted HTTP(S. connection where all it sees is Base64 encoded data which appears just like any other binary stream over HTTP(S. The receiver application decodes this data and stores it in Cloud Storage while sending back notifications to the client via Webex Messaging Server indicating that its upload was successful or failed due to any reason (like permission denied. There are several advantages of using Webex Messaging:

· It supports both HTTP(S. based uploads as well as uploads using WebSockets connections meaning you can use whichever one suits you best depending on your use case (for example if there are browsers without Websocket support then you can use HTTP(S. connections instead.

· It supports uploading files from mobile devices by taking advantage of their Camera API’s without writing any custom code for handling these events because it uses Google Apps Script for doing this (see https://developers.google.com/apps-script/articles/gs-api-camera. It automatically handles things like image resizing and encoding depending on the file type being uploaded which means you don’t have to write any extra code to handle this behavior because Google Apps Script takes care of that for you automatically (more information here https://developers.google.com/apps-script/articles/gs-api-image. Also, since it uses Google Apps Script, it supports extensions which allow you to import libraries written in Java or Python so you can take advantage of existing framework like jQuery if you want to do things like image manipulation or resizing images at runtime (information here https://developers.google.com/apps-script/guides/overview#extensions.

· It supports logging upload events in Firebase Analytics which means you can log event data like how many times a particular attachment was downloaded etc.. This will help with analytics tracking for your application which will allow you to understand things like what types of files your users are uploading or what type of devices they are using etc.. All this information will help you decide whether your application needs more resources allocated towards it or whether you need additional services like video conferencing etc.. More information here https://firebase.google.com/docs/analytics/integrate/. Logging upload events means
