Bigtable with Dataproc

Bigtable is Google's NoSQL Big Data database service. It's the same database that powers many core Google services, including Search, Analytics, Maps, and Gmail. Bigtable is designed to handle massive workloads at consistent low latency and high throughput, so it's a great choice for both operational and analytical applications, including IoT, user analytics, and financial data analysis.

Bigtable is an excellent option for any Apache Spark or Hadoop uses that require Apache HBase. Bigtable supports the Apache HBase 1.0+ and 2.0+ APIs, and offers a Bigtable HBase client in Maven to use Bigtable with Dataproc.
