Launch applications and features faster
Firestore offers a great developer experience with built-in live synchronization, offline support, and ACID transactions. These features are available across a robust set of client and server-side libraries.
Effortlessly scale to meet unpredictable demand
Firestore automatically scales up and down based on demand. It requires no maintenance, and provides high availability of 99.99–99.999% achieved through strongly consistent data replication.
Simple and flexible with pay as you go
No-ops database lets you pay only for what you use—no up-front expenditure or underutilized resources. Simplified architecture lets your apps talk directly to Firestore from your mobile or web clients.
Quickstart using a mobile/web client library
Set up a Firestore database, add data, and read data using the Android, iOS, or Web client libraries.
Quickstart using a server client library
Set up a Firestore database, add data, and read data using the the C#, Go, Java, Node.js, PHP, Python, or Ruby server client library.

Firestore client libraries
Build a sample app for Android, iOS, Web, or Java.
|Serverless||Fully managed, serverless database that effortlessly scales up or down to meet any demand, with no maintenance windows or downtime.|
|Live synchronization and offline mode||Built-in live synchronization and offline mode make it easy to build multi-user, collaborative applications on mobile web, and IoT devices, including workloads consisting of live asset tracking, activity tracking, real-time analytics, media and product catalogs, communications, social user profiles, and gaming leaderboards.|
|Powerful query engine||Firestore allows you to run sophisticated ACID transactions against your document data. This gives you more flexibility in the way you structure your data.|
|Libraries for popular languages||Focus on your application development using Firestore client-side development libraries for Web, iOS, Android, Flutter, C++, and Unity. Firestore also supports traditional server-side development libraries using Node.js, Java, Go, Ruby, and PHP.|
|Security||Firestore seamlessly integrates with Firebase Authentication and Identity Platform, to enable customizable identity-based security access controls and enables data validation via a configuration language.|
|Multi-region replication||With automatic multi-region replication and strong consistency, your data is safe and has a 99.999% availability guarantee, even when disasters strike.|
|Datastore mode||Firestore supports the Datastore API. You won't need to make any changes to your existing Datastore apps, and you can expect the same performance characteristics and pricing with the added benefit of strong consistency. Existing Cloud Datastore databases will be automatically upgraded to Firestore starting in 2021.|
