this is not a technical question I know, perhaps it is a bit off-topic, but I think it is important to discuss the technologies we use every day to make our Apps.
I see everyday tutorials and articles that promote and explain the use of Firebase with Angular, Ionic, and other technologies.
But I have some concerns and some doubts about Firebase, because it is a Google proprietary technology and because it must be hosted on their servers.
At the moment these two things are a guarantee of quality, but what about the future?
What will happen if Google increases prices or introduces other limitations?
Would you trust to use Firebase for an important application? What would happen if overnight, for some reason, it was no longer usable? The fact that it cannot be used with the on-promise formula, in my opinion, is not reassuring.
What do you think?
Are there real alternatives?
