Enterprise Cloud Data Warehouse

BigQuery is Google's fully managed, petabyte scale, low cost enterprise data warehouse for analytics. BigQuery is serverless. There is no infrastructure to manage and you don't need a database administrator, so you can focus on analyzing data to find meaningful insights using familiar SQL. BigQuery is a powerful Big Data analytics platform used by all types of organizations, from startups to Fortune 500 companies.

Speed & Scale

BigQuery can scan TB in seconds and PB in minutes. Load your data from Google Cloud Storage or Google Cloud Datastore, or stream it into BigQuery to enable real-time analysis of your data. With BigQuery you can easily scale your database from GBs to PBs.

Speed and Performance

Incredible Pricing

BigQuery separates the concepts of storage and compute, allowing you to scale and pay for each independently. It also gives you flexible pricing options to better suit your needs. You can either choose a pay-as-you-go model or a flat-rate monthly price for those who need cost predictability.
