BigTable

BigTable is a proprietary Google product that is only used by Google. It is designed to work with Google’s MapReduce framework, which was created to process huge data sets across large clusters of computing nodes.

BigTable stores the massive sets of data used by many Google programs like Google Reader, My Search History, Google Earth, YouTube, and Gmail. BigTable is not available for use outside of Google.

The papers that describe Google’s design for both BigTable and MapReduce are listed in the “References” section of this chapter.
