A tablet is a unit of data distribution and load balancing.
Bigtable: A Distributed Storage System for Structured Data
History BigTable was among the early attempts Google made to manage big data. A tablet is stored in the form of a log-structured merge tree which they call memtable and SSTable.
BigTable is a distributed storage system used in Google, it can be classified as a non-relational database system. BigTable assumes an underlying reliable distributed file system here is Google File System. It does not support transactions spanning multiple rows. BigTable uses physical logging. Storage Model Custom In BigTable, a table is split into multiple tablets, each of which is a subset of consecutive rows. Google File System is a reliable distributed file system that the other two build upon; MapReduce is a distributed data processing framework; BigTable is a distributed storage system.
Furthermore, BigTable allows clients to create locality group. Jeffrey Dean and Sanjay Ghemawat were involved in it. Each table usually contains a small number of column families, which should be rarely changed because the change of them involves metadata change.
It is one of the three components Google built for managing big data the other two are Google File System and MapReduce. The tablets are stored in Google File System, which is a disk-oriented file system. BigTable provides clients with the following APIs: Logging Physical Logging BigTable uses physical logging.
It typically works on petabytes of data spread across thousands of machines. There is not much public information about the detail of BigTable, since it is proprietory to Google. Stored Procedures Not Supported. BigTable was among the early attempts Google made to manage big data. Inside each column family, there can be unlimited number of columns.
Bigtabe three components focus on different aspects of big data: Users can freely add or delete columns in a column family. Look Up Read a Single Row 2. BigTable does not have any type information associated with a given column.
The most authoritative information about it is its paper. For performance consideration, all tablets on a tablet server write logs to the same log file.

Customized Scripts written in Sawzall language http: Browse Recent Revision List. Deleting of an entire column family is also supported. It does not support transactions spanning multiple rows http: Scan Read a subset of rows 3. They all have their open source implementation. A locality group is a subset of columns in a table. Query Compilation Not Supported. The documentation of that might be biftable, too.
Instead, it provides users the ability to create column families in a table.
Different tablets of a table may be assigned to different tablet servers. BigTable does not support relational data model. Customized Scripts written in Sawzall language. BigTable BigTable is a distributed storage system used in Google, bigtxble can be classified as a non-relational database system. BigTable only supports transactions on a single row. It only treats data as strings of bytes. An open source implementation of it based on its original paper is Apache HBase.
These three projects are very famous in distributed system.
In BigTable, a table is split into multiple tablets, each of which is a subset of consecutive rows. The most recently written records are stored in memtable, which is in memory.
BigTable is designed mainly for scalability. However, most of the data is stored on disk. BigTable will create a separate SSTable for each locality group, which will improve read performance of this locality group.
