Explain Google Bigtable.


  • Google Bigtable is a distributed, column-oriented data store developed by Google Inc. to manage massive volumes of structured data related to the company's Internet search and Web services operations.
  • Bigtable was created to enable applications that need large scalability; the technology was meant to be utilized with petabytes of data from its inception. The database was designed to run on clustered servers and has a basic data format described by Google as "a sparse, distributed, permanent multi-dimensional sorted map." The data is placed in order by row key, and the map's indexing is sorted by row, column keys, and timestamps. Algorithms for compression aid in achieving high capacity.
  • BigTable is a petabyte scale, fully managed NoSQL database service designed for big analytical and operational workloads. Google Cloud Bigtable is a NoSQL Big Data database service. It's the same database that underpins many of Google's main services, such as Search, Analytics, Maps, and Gmail.' 
  • Google Bigtable is the database used by Google App Engine Datastore, Google Personalized Search, Google Earth, and Google Analytics. Google has kept the program as a private, internal technology. Nonetheless, Bigtable has had a significant effect on the architecture of NoSQL databases.
  • Because of Google's detailed disclosure of Bigtable's internal workings, other corporations and which source development teams have created Bigtable equivalents, such as the Apache HBase database, which is designed to run on top of the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). Cassandra, which is developed at Facebook Inc., and Hypertable, an open-source solution that is sold in a commercial version as an alternative to HBase , are two examples.
