Mornings are for coffee and contemplation but also for playing 'Stranger Things: The Game'

Firebase also designed it to automatically scale based on user demand so it can handle spikes if an app suddenly becomes popular, and Cloud Firestore performs multi-regional replication so it has low latency and reliability in the event a node goes down.
