To en­hance de­vel­oper en­gage­ments around its Fire­base ap­pli­ca­tion de­vel­op­ment plat­form, Google has launched Cloud Fire­store.

The lat­est in­no­va­tion brings a fully-man­aged NoSQL doc­u­ment data­base that can store and sync app data at a global scale.

“We’ve aimed for the sim­plic­ity and ease-of-use that is al­ways top pri­or­ity for Fire­base, while mak­ing sure that Cloud Fire­store can scale to power even the largest apps,” said Alex Dufe­tel, prod­uct man­ager for Fire­base at Google, in a blog post.

Avail­able in beta, Cloud Fire­store is de­signed to help devel­op­ers hold doc­u­ments and col­lec­tions on the cloud with query­ing sup­port. The data­base comes with iOS, An­droid and Web SDKs. It also sup­ports off­line data ac­cess and en­ables real-time data syn­chro­ni­sa­tion. Ad­di­tion­ally, devel­op­ers can lever­age the built-in au­to­matic, multi-re­gion data repli­ca­tion fea­ture to get bet­ter cloud ac­cess.

Cloud Fire­store en­able server­less de­vel­op­ment and pro­vide off­line data ac­cess with lo­cal data­base sup­port for the Web as well as An­droid and iOS plat­forms. Devel­op­ers can pick the Cloud Fire­store SDKs for Java, Go, Python and Node.js.

Google’s Cloud Fire­store hasn’t been de­vel­oped from scratch, but built as an up­grade to the ex­ist­ing Fire­base Real­time Data­base, which of­fers the de­vel­oper com­mu­nity a real-time data­base — man­aged and scaled by Google. Key lim­i­ta­tions such as data struc­tur­ing, query­ing and scal­ing have all been ad­dressed in this up­grade.

You can get started with the pub­lic beta of Cloud Fire­store by vis­it­ing the data­base tab in your Fire­base con­sole.
