Firebase, real-time backend for web application development, originally launched a little over a year ago. Since its launch, Firebase has remained in beta while it continued to improve its service and build a customer base. Over the past year, Firebase has added features, functionality, and thousands of customers. Accordingly, Firebase has announced it is leaving its beta stages behind and publically launching as a full-fledged paid product.
The API platform extends the company's cloud integration capabilities. With a goal of delivering capabilities for designing, prototyping, documenting, testing, and managing the proliferation of APIs, Oracle integrated Oracle tools with capabilities gained through its recent Apiary acquisition.
