Cloud Bigtable has long been Google Cloud's fully managed NoSQL database for massive, petabyte-sized analytical and operational workloads. At $0.65 per hour and node, it was never a cheap service to run, especially because Google Cloud enforced a minimum of three nodes per cluster for production workloads. Today, however, it is changing that, and you can now run Bigtable production workloads on just a single node. "We want Bigtable to be an excellent home for all of your key-value and wide-column use-cases, both large and small," Google Cloud Bigtable product manager Sandy Ghai said in today's announcement. "That's true whether you're a developer just getting started, or an established enterprise looking for a landing place for your self-managed HBase or Cassandra clusters."
