Google offers up own database to power enterprise analytics

Bigtable powers Google's own largest applications.

By Alexander Sword

Google has made a NoSQL database service powered by Bigtable available on Google Cloud Platform.

Google Cloud Bigtable, now available in Beta, provides large ingestion, analytics and data-heavy serving workloads for enterprises. It is powered by the database which powers Google’s own largest applications.

Accessed through the HBase API, the solution is integrated with parts of the existing big data and Hadoop ecosystem. It supports Google’s big data products and data can be imported from or to Hbase clusters.

The service claims to offer single-digit millisecond latency and a simple user interface.

To support the launch, Google has assembled a group of service partners to work with clients, including SunGard, Pythian, CCRi and Telit Wireless Solutions.

"As businesses become increasingly data-centric, and with the coming age of the Internet of Things (IoT), enterprises and data-driven organisations must become adept at efficiently deriving insights from their data," commented Cory O’Connor, Product Manager, in a blog.

"In this environment, any time spent building and managing infrastructure rather than working on applications is a lost opportunity. That’s why today we are excited to introduce Google Cloud Bigtable – a fully managed, high-performance, extremely scalable NoSQL database service accessible through the industry-standard, open-source Apache HBase API."
