"Google Cloud Platform Big Table - Tremendous Computing Power From Google "

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 put..it 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.

"Super intuitive cloud-based database software, easy to integrate"

What do you like best?

Everything in the Google Cloud Platform ecosystem is really well-integrated. If you want to add a firewall to a virtual machine instance, you just add a firewall in the firewall menu. Same thing goes for the cloud BigTable: Google has made really easy to add a scaleable database infrastructure directly to a virtual machine instance, almost like Databases as a Service (dbaaS)

What do you dislike?

Some of the documentation is a little bit vague and could use a bit more deal, but that usually always comes with time. Also, Google's Cloud Platform general UI is still a little clunky and un-intuitive, although the products themselves are pretty polished. This UI takes some getting used to.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you already use Google Cloud for your cloud services or backend, this service is definitely worth looking at. On the other hand, Google still needs to work on most of their UI/documentation, so if you're considering switching over from a different service, like DigitalOcean, I would give it a second thought.

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

Google Cloud BigTable is really easy-to-set up, configure, and integrate into any backend. They've quite literally mastered the process and made it extremely intuitive.

What Other Non-Relational Databases solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Powerful, Game-Changing Cloud "

What do you like best?

I love the accessibility of the new Google Cloud BigTable infrastructure. It allows users to access data and information from anywhere in the world at high-level speeds that the competitors can't keep up with.

What do you dislike?

I dislike some of the higher fees you must pay to use this service. It is high, but I suppose you get what you pay for! This is great software for medium to large-scale companies. The price is worth it; you get whay ou pay for!

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

I've seen it actively be used in everyday operations within the US Air Force. It has made me realize that feasibility of sharing data to and from different organizations around the world. I think this has the potential to drastically change the way businesses and government entities to business with one another all around the world. It eliminates the need for many redundant systems and conventional travel-type business. This is a step in the right direction and I cannot wait to see how Google Cloud BigTable transforms itself in the next century,

"Never Simplier"

What do you like best?

Google BigTable literally took seconds to Set up and integrate a cluster to our servers using an easy api with plenty of storage and network capacity at a fraction of the cost we previously had.

Increasing storage is easy but required a little longer timeframe then expected to push out to the cluster.

Storing massive data at affordable pricing meant we could leverage larger data foe our projects without breaking the bank.

"Emerging Solution for Big Data Storage"

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.

When saving huge objects in some columns or map but RAM doesn't fit BigTable solves it.
