What do you like best?

Cloud Bigtable is a fully managed NoSQL database that supports the popular open-source Apache HBase 1.0 API. You can provision Cloud Bigtable instances for your workload, then use the Bigtable HBase client to develop applications using the standard open-source Big Data tools you're familiar with.

Cloud Bigtable is Google's NoSQL Big Data database service. It's the same database that powers many core Google services, including Search, Analytics, Maps, and Gmail.Bigtable is designed to handle massive workloads at consistent low latency and high throughput, so it's a great choice for both operational and analytical applications, including IoT, user analytics, and financial data analysis.

Simply does exactly what it says it will do..

What do you dislike?

There is a fairly steep learning curve to getting Big Table up and running. It is also frustrating to have need ot use tools on GCP, AWS and Azure because everything can't be found in one place.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Before you deploy a product like Big Table, you should understand what your intended use is and make sure that the tools exist on Google Cloud Platform to support it. Second, you need to decide on the level of Engineering Support you expect to need from Google and lock that down before you proceed. You don't want to start with a LOB application only to discover that you get hamstrung due to a technical glitch with the platform.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Bigtable as the storage engine for large-scale, low-latency applications as well as throughput-intensive data processing and analytics. Big Table lets us scale up the computing power when we have a specific use and ratchet down when we don't.

Emerging Solution for Big Data Storage

Reviewed On
Validated Reviewer
What do you like best?

BigTable is a part of Google Cloud Platform which makes it a more powerful solution than other similar products. I have been using BigTable to store huge log files of critical services and. I'm pretty satisfied with the results. Performance of the BigTable is unmatchable and the integration features with other Google Cloud Platform products including BigQuery, Compute Engine, Cloud SQL and BigTable is working quite well.

What do you dislike?

Unlike other Google Cloud Platform products, BigTable is not enough documented yet. Also API options are limited when I compare it with other similar products. Since BigTable is still in Beta version, it still needs improvements.

Recommendations to others considering the product

BigTable is a new software released in 2015 and still it covers all the emerging needs and provides common basic features. If you are planning to migrate to the cloud you have to trust the product and Google does it best. Also do not think BigTable as a single product, because it is not. BigTable is only a part of a big cloud data-ecosystem provided by Google and it's power comes from integrations with other products.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been storing huge log records with BigTable which also let us to query on them with BigQuery. BigTable is a reliable service with no performance issues.

Cassandra's data model offers the convenience of column indexes with the performance of log-structured updates, strong support for denormalization and materialized views, and powerful built-in caching.
Knack Logo
Knack enables anyone to build simple web apps and online databases.
