Cloudant vs Cloud Firestore: What are the differences?

Cloudant: Distributed database-as-a-service (DBaaS) for web & mobile apps. Cloudant’s distributed database as a service (DBaaS) allows developers of fast-growing web and mobile apps to focus on building and improving their products, instead of worrying about scaling and managing databases on their own; Cloud Firestore: NoSQL database built for global apps. Cloud Firestore is a NoSQL document database that lets you easily store, sync, and query data for your mobile and web apps - at global scale.

Cloudant and Cloud Firestore can be primarily classified as "NoSQL Database as a Service" tools.

Some of the features offered by Cloudant are:

  • Managed- Cloudant's big data experts monitor your data 24/7 to ensure its high availability and safety.
  • Distributed Multi-Master Database- All read and write transactions can be synced across Cloudant's global data network without global locks, providing true high availability of your data.
  • Geo-load Balancing- To keep latency low, our geo-load balancing infrastructure routes requests to the copies of the data that are geographically closest to the requestor.

On the other hand, Cloud Firestore provides the following key features:

  • Documents and collections with powerful querying
  • iOS, Android, and Web SDKs with offline data access
  • Real-time data synchronization
