BigQuery is Google's fully managed, NoOps, data analytics service. With BigQuery you have no infrastructure to manage, don't need a database administrator, use familiar SQL and can take advantage of a pay-as-you-go model. This myriad of features allows you to focus on what matters most: unlocking meaningful insights to better serve your customers. Organizations of all sizes, from Fortune 500 to startups, have adopted BigQuery as their Big Data analytics platform of choice.
Flexible data ingestion
Load your data from Google Cloud Storage or Google Cloud Datastore, or stream it into BigQuery at 100,000 rows per second to enable real-time analysis of your data.
Fast and performant
BigQuery's columnar architecture is designed to handle nested and repeated fields in a highly performant manner, enabling super-fast queries to help you save time and money.
Affordable big data
Loading and exporting data, and metadata operations, are free of charge. Pay only for what you store and what you query, and the first 1 TB of data processed each month is free. For more information see the BigQuery pricing page.
Ease of collaboration
BigQuery enables you to access, save and share complex datasets. You can also specify what permissions they have on the dataset.
BigQuery is built with a replicated storage strategy. All data is encrypted both in-flight and at rest. You can protect your data with strong role-based ACLs that you configure and control.
Strong partner ecosystem
Partners have integrated BigQuery with some of the industry-leading tools for loading, transforming and visualizing data.
