AWS Lambda’s performance is also very strong. All of their Cloud solutions are beginner friendly and they make it easy to set up. The service is reliable and customer support is there (It’s Amazon, so of course their customer support is superb).
It’s also a pay-per-use service so that your cost is dependent on the type of traffic you receive. In general, their entire ecosystem is made to be all-inclusive. If you don’t want to bounce around with services, AWS is a great choice.
AWS could also be a difficult choice to recommend. There’s a slight learning curve, especially considering they have such a large suite of products on hand. Their infrastructure is also geared a little more towards larger teams. If handled incorrectly, AWS could end up costing you more money than you originally anticipated.
Google’s Firebase includes services that make it easy to scale. It also features traffic management services within their suite.
They also boast low IT costs. If you’re a small team setting up, Firebase might serve you better than a heavy AWS setup. It also has a lower learning curve than AWS.
On the flip side, Firebase makes it difficult to query larger datasets. Their database also doesn’t provide relational data, which could spell trouble for some newer companies.
If your situation calls for a more mature service that has an entire suite of services at your beck and call, AWS should be in your sights.
If you’re a newer team that’s prepping to set things up quickly, Firebase could serve you well. Regardless, you’ll need to monitor your serverless setup. That’s where we come in. If you’re going to choose AWS, we’re here to make sure you’re running smoothly.
