BigTable Characteristics

This lesson will explore some miscellaneous characteristics of BigTable.

BigTable performance

Here are a few reasons behind BigTable's performance and popularity:

  • Distributed multi-level map: BigTable can run on a large number of machines.
  • Scalable means that BigTable can be easily scaled horizontally by adding more nodes to the cluster without any performance impact. No manual intervention or rebalancing is required. BigTable achieves linear scalability and proven fault tolerance on commodity hardware.
