Firebase is document database that provides real time update to all clients connected to it.
In addition to providing a persistence layer, Firebase also makes it easy to perform authentication against third party OAuth providers such as Google+, Facebook and Github.
In many cases, in addition to authentication, an application will also require hooks into routing, protecting private pages and a means to store user profile information.
