It's faster than other solutions on the market
Pros and Cons
  • "Bigtable is faster than other competitors in the market. It helps us collate all the data, and the security features are great. The latency is low, and the computation speed is fantastic. Bigtable is also a managed service, so you don't have to worry about anything aside from analyzing the data ingested."
  • "I've used Bigtable for about three or four years."

What is our primary use case?

We've helped some conglomerates collect all the data scattered across their CRM and other business systems and feed it into Google Cloud's ecosystem. We run analytics on the data to provide insights to the leadership team in the form of dashboards integrated with tools like Tableau, Looker, etc.

We have at least three clients on Bigtable, but more of our customers are on Bigquery. Bigtable is also used for a couple of our clients in the automobile sector.

What is most valuable?

Bigtable is faster than other competitors in the market. It helps us collate all the data, and the security features are great. The latency is low, and the computation speed is fantastic. Bigtable is also a managed service, so you don't have to worry about anything aside from analyzing the data ingested.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used Bigtable for about three or four years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Bigtable is stable

Amazon DynamoDB vs. Google Cloud Bigtable
September 2022
Find out what your peers are saying about Amazon DynamoDB vs. Google Cloud Bigtable and other solutions. Updated: September 2022.
633,952 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Bigtable is scalable. 

How are customer service and support?

Google support is great. As partners, we have direct access to the product teams and customer engineers. Whenever we've had questions, Google Cloud has been helpful.

How was the initial setup?

Deploying Bigtable is straightforward. Some of our implementations took about a month, while others went up to six to eight weeks. Thorough documentation is available on the Google Cloud website, so our teams didn't struggle.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

You get a better price if commit to a longer subscription, but they also have a pay-as-you-go model if you're still experimenting with it. It would be nice if the pay-as-you-go license were a little cheaper. I think more customers would use it. Cost optimization is one area Google could improve, but it's great otherwise.

What other advice do I have?

I rate Google Cloud Bigtable 8.5 out of 10. Whether you're a large enterprise or a startup, everything heavily relies on data these days, and Bigtable plays a vital role. An established organization often has data scattered everywhere, so it's a challenge to generate insights. People might be working in silos, but everything needs to be in one place to make data-driven decisions. That's where Bigtable can have an impact.  

Startups face different issues. Their initial strategy is usually to acquire customers, and Bigtable can help them identify the right market for their product. Data analytics is essential to business, and Bigtable acts as a backbone of the entire operation. I recommend it for all types of customers.

When it comes to the cloud, a lot of things are evolving and there are a lot of new happenings. There is not one thing, but every area including security, data aspects, and networking are all included. This is why it is important to have a system that is transparent.

I can't say whether I would recommend this product, or not. People have to make their own choice of using cloud-based services.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
