Database integration


I’m developing a hybrid application and want suggestions on how I should integrate a database with it. Some important notes are:

  • Database will store user account information & product information
  • Products will be frequently added and removed from the database
  • Hundreds of concurrent users
  • Database will obviously need to be on a server for users to pull information from on the app

I was thinking about using Firebase’s Cloud Firestore or Realtime Database, but have no knowledge of NoSQL and the pros and cons in regards to my specific application. It’s either that or me creating an entire backend myself, which I don’t think I will have the time and resources to accomplish. Should I just use Firebase? Will it pertain to my application? Would appreciate some expert advice, as this is my first time working with Ionic.
