BigQuery by Google

Google BigQuery is a massively parallel-processing cloud data warehouse. Its query engine is powered by Dremel and its file system is powered by Colossus. Within BigQuery, data is stored in a columnar format. 

Some features that make BigQuery unique:

  • BigQuery is truly serverless, it is a data warehouse as a service, with no management involved at all.
  • BigQuery supports developing and deploying machine learning models via BigQuery ML. 
  • BigQuery supports streaming ingestion without any middleware.
  • BigQuery supports GIS for geospatial analysis & location intelligence.
  • BigQuery has an in-memory BI service that natively connects to Google Data Studio and Google Spreadsheets.
  • BigQuery Omni supports analyzing data across clouds without leaving the interface

Furthermore, BigQuery embodies a data warehouse and data lake convergence ("data lakehouse") as all data is available through the storage API.
