BigQuery engine is capable of analysing up to 70TB of uncompressed data in size at once
Search engine major Google has released its BigQuery cloud data analytics engine after keeping it in limited beta for about a year.
The BigQuery service has been designed to let businesses upload and analyse huge amounts of data on the cloud without having to invest in their own data centre. This would be very helpful to the small businesses, the company said.
The BigQuery engine is capable of analysing up to 70TB of uncompressed data in size at once, it is said.
The service comes with its own API called REST, which will allow application developers to build the service into existing code and use it to conduct multiple jobs.
The company said that as of now the service was free to access for everyone and added that it would give a one month’s prior notice before it starts charging for the services.
Google’s vice president of applications Dave Girouard said this is one of those things you would have to have spent incredible amounts of money to get in the past.
