Google Launches Bigtable: Same NoSQL Database that powers Google Search, Gmail and Analytics

Google officially launched Cloud Bigtable - a fully managed, high-performance, extremely scalable NoSQL database service that uses the same code and infrastructure that powers Google Search, Gmail and Analytics and nearly all of Google's largest applications.

Google Cloud BigTable is accessible through the industry-standard, open-source Apache HBase API, which makes it natively integrated with much of the existing big data and Hadoop ecosystem.

Google Cloud Bigtable is now available as a beta release in multiple locations worldwide. Google also announced a number of service partners to help enterprises, including SunGard, Pythian, CCRI and Telit Wireless Solutions.
