    Firebase pros/cons and alternatives?

    Its difficult to estimate costs without knowing the schema, number of users, data volume etc. Depends on the use case entirely. Firebase is Volume of Data x Number of devices x Number of updates to DB. You have to manage it so that a little db is available to all users and then user specific...

    Firebase pros/cons and alternatives?

    It is a little more than that. But it does handle the realtime-db scenarios that firebase provides. For other backend related stuff you can use aws amplify. Longer term these work better. Security wise too. You can find a ton of open firebase databases. Not the fault of firebase but with aws you...

    Firebase pros/cons and alternatives?

    Realtime database gets very expensive very quickly once you have significant number of users. AWS Appsync works better in longer run.

    Smart plug (16A) recommendations?

    Doesn't cutting off power supply harm the AC, without turning it off with the remote? As far as I understand compressor needs time to shut off properly.

    User Review My first ever NAS device - Synology DS218j Review

    I found unraid to be better choice. There is a large community and very good VM/Docker support. It requires a license but worth the price. Depends on use though. My plex, portainer, timemachine backup and a lot more running from this NAS. Btrfs still has issues so sticking to xfs for now.

Since you're using drives of same capacity, I assume running in RAID 1, QNAP, WD, Asus are all good alternatives. QNAP and WD are widely available with sellers. For 2 bay systems it...
