GCP Big Table – main facts

GCP Big Table – main facts:

Is the basis of many google products
Object storage system

Does not offer indexes except for a single range index you can use

Is the basis for Hadoop big data system

You pay for storage separately

You pay for min 3 nodes and can expand as you need

Nodes are needed just for read / write – not for storage

Support for massive amounts of reads / writes but not locking or transaction support

Is not completely and highly available since sometimes data is not available as it is moved around

Great for big queries, less for short quick rapid ones
