System APIs

BigTable provides APIs for two types of operations:

  • Metadata operations
  • Data operations

Metadata operations

BigTable provides APIs for creating and deleting tables and column families. It also provides functions for changing cluster, table, and column family metadata, such as access control rights.

Data operations

Clients can insert, modify, or delete values in BigTable. Clients can also lookup values from individual rows or iterate over a subset of the data in a table.
