I want to develop a mobile app with Cloud Firestore as backend. It's good until I realize need to implement FullTextSearch, and Firestore doesn't support it natively. Although they advise to use Algolia but at this time I'm not willing to pay for it.

Therefore, I'm thinking about using the built-in tool from Google Cloud. Since this app is online-only, the offline & sync are not a top priority, so how about use Google Cloud SQL? Or, do you recommend any stack for me? Thanks for your advice.

The MySQL software delivers a very fast, multi-threaded, multi-user, and robust SQL (Structured Query Language) database server. MySQL Server is intended for mission-critical, heavy-load production systems as well as for embedding into mass-deployed software.
Apache Aurora
Apache Aurora is a service scheduler that runs on top of Mesos, enabling you to run long-running services that take advantage of Mesos' scalability, fault-tolerance, and resource isolation.
Google Cloud Datastore
Use a managed, NoSQL, schemaless database for storing non-relational data. Cloud Datastore automatically scales as you need it and supports transactions as well as robust, SQL-like queries.
Google Cloud Spanner
It is a globally distributed database service that gives developers a production-ready storage solution. It provides key features such as global transactions, strongly consistent reads, and automatic multi-site replication and failover.
