One of the most important aspects while working with data warehousing solutions and analytics is the ability to handle large datasets. Google BigQuery is the best in business for that particular aspect. It is ridiculously fast while handling large data sets. Another aspect where it is well suited is the ability to integrate it with data visualization tools like Data Studio. It is fast, easy to use, and very reliable. The only aspect where I feel it is less appropriate where you have to pay more of inefficient scripts and that can hamper the growth of the company a bit.

Presto is for interactive simple queries, where
is for reliable processing. If you have a fact-dim join, presto is great..however for fact-fact joins presto is not the solution.. Presto is a great replacement for proprietary technology like
Vertica Read full review Pros BigQuery is ridiculously fast and has the ability to query absurdly large data sets to return results immediately. BigQuery allows for storage of a massive amount of data for relatively low prices. Easy to learn. BiqQuery uses SQL-like queries and is easy to transfer your existing skills to use. Read full review Linking, embedding links and adding images is easy enough. Once you have become familiar with the interface, Presto becomes very quick & easy to use (but, you have to practice & repeat to know what you are doing - it is not as intuitive as one would hope). Organizing & design is fairly simple with click & drag parameters. Read full review Cons One issue with Google Cloud Storage is its price. For one to have that premium Google Cloud Storage, for the purpose of massive storage, he/she must have adequate cash. Otherwise, Google Cloud Storage is a safe and perfect online storage platform. The only thing that can come to mind that would be annoying with this software was that sometimes when trying to share files on the Cloud with coworkers, it would just not share at all, or there would be a massive delay in when I shared them and when they received them. Other than that though, everything is perfect with this. Read full review Presto was not designed for large fact fact joins. This is by design as presto does not leverage disk and used memory for processing which in turn makes it fast.. However, this is a tradeoff..in an ideal world, people would like to use one system for all their use cases, and presto should get exhaustive by solving this problem. Resource allocation is not similar to YARN and presto has a priority queue based query resource allocation..so a query that takes long takes longer...this might be alleviated by giving some more control back to the user to define priority/override. UDF Support is not available in presto. You will have to write your own functions..while this is good for performance, it comes at a huge overhead of building exclusively for presto and not being interoperable with other systems like Hive, SparkSQL etc. Read full review Usability
web UI is easy and convenient. Many RDBMS clients such as aqua data studio, Dbeaver data grid, and others connect. Range of well-documented APIs available. The range of features keeps expanding, increasing similar features to traditional RDBMS such as Oracle and DB2

It’s Google, they’re big and well organized, the documentation is abundant and the scalability is amazing. The UX is good too, considering it’s a professional tool expected to be used by people with a specific technical background. Overall, it makes me feels good and secure that we know where to store the data, how to use that data and that the data is handled with utmost security and performance practices.

Spinning up, provisioning, maintaining and debugging a Hadoop solution can be non-trivial, painful. I'm talking about both GCE based or HDInsight clusters. It requires expertise (+ employee hire, costs). With BigQuery if someone has a good SQL knowledge (and maybe a little programming), can already start to test and develop. All of the infrastructure and platform services are taken care of. Google BigQuery is a magnitudes simpler to use than Hadoop, but you have to evaluate the costs. BigQuery billing is dependent on your data size and how much data your query touches.

Presto is good for a templated design appeal. You cannot be too creative via this interface - but, the layout and options make the finalized visual product appealing to customers. The other design products I use are for different purposes and not really comparable to Presto.

None so far. Very satisfied with the transparency on contract terms and pricing model.

Read full review Return on Investment Google BigQuery has had enormous impact in terms of ROI to our business, as it has allowed us to ease our dependence on our physical servers, which we pay for monthly from another hosting service. We have been able to run multiple enterprise scale data processing applications with almost no investment Since our business is highly client focused, Google Cloud Platform, and BigQuery specifically, has allowed us to get very granular in how our usage should be attributed to different projects, clients, and teams. Plain and simple, I believe the meager investments that we have made in Google BigQuery have paid themselves back hundreds of times over. Read full review Presto has helped scale Uber's interactive data needs. We have migrated a lot out of proprietary tech like Vertica. Presto has helped build data driven applications on its stack than maintain a separate online/offline stack. Presto has helped us build data exploration tools by leveraging it's power of interactive and is immensely valuable for data scientists. Read full review ScreenShots
