Cloud Firestore Database Best Practices

I am looking for any resources that can help me with regards to designing Cloud Firestore database for scalability.  If anyone knows of any resource,  that I can use I would really appreciate it.

Hello @siba and welcome to C2C! It's great to have you with us here! :)

First of all, I am not sure if you've checked out the official Firestore documentation, but in case you haven't, here are a couple of resources to get started with:

1) Firestore

2) Building scalable applications with Firestore

3) Create a Firestore database by using a web or mobile client library

4) Create a Firestore database by using a server client library


Do these help for a starter? :)


Please let me know if you're looking for something more specialised.

And by the way, since I can see you are new to the community and this is your first post, I would like to encourage you to start a new topic in the C2C Lounge and present yourself to us using this template. It would be great for our members and us to get to know you better! :)

Last but not least, check out this video from this event we had about a year ago with Michael Pytel (@mpytel), co-founder and CTO at Fulfilld:

Scaling an Enterprise Software: Autoscaling Applications and Databases (full video)

Michael compares Data store options using BigQuery, Firestore, and CloudSQL.


And, finally, I don't know if you're interested in Google Cloud Bigtable - check also "Bringing More Insights to the Table with Cloud Bigtable" out :)

Thank you so much @Dimitris Petrakis . I will go through the links you have provided.
