Google Cloud Bigtable examples

Travis CI status Stack Overflow

Bigger than a data warehouse, fast enough for real-time access, and less expensive than running virtual machines. The world-renowned database that powers Google is now available to you worldwide.


Google Cloud Bigtable offers you a fast, fully managed, almost infinitely scalable NoSQL database service that's ideal for web, mobile, and IoT applications requiring terabytes to petabytes of data. Unlike comparable market offerings, Cloud Bigtable doesn't require you to sacrifice speed, scale, or cost efficiency when your applications grow. The Bigtable service that Cloud Bigtable relies upon has been battle-tested at Google for more than 10 years—it's the database driving major applications such as Search, Analytics, Maps and Gmail.
