In this video, Google’s Ryan Boyd presents: Crunching Big Data with Google BigQuery.
Google BigQuery is a Big Data analysis tool born from an internal technology known as Dremel. BigQuery enables developers to analyze terabyte data sets in seconds using a RESTful API and a SQL-like query language. We’ll demonstrate how you can incorporate Google BigQuery into your own applications, and how queries are processed underneath the covers. We’ll also show examples using public data sets and demos built by other developers like you.
Boyd describes Big Data as 500 Million rows or more, and the Google BigQuery web service lets you do interactive analysis on multiple billions of rows.
