Am i thinking about this correctly? Id like to read the majority of my data from typesense if so, for the above reason along with TS having better querying capabilities.

• There is also a bandwidth component for the pricing, but this is typically not a problem for most use cases.
• A single Typesense instance is probably not as resilient as Firestore in an apples to apples pricing comparison (for e.g. if the host goes down it will take some time before it comes back up). The HA configuration is recommended if you want greater guarantee there, which will require running a 3-node configuration.
