Cloud Bigtable is a fully-managed NoSQL database service designed to handle massive amounts of information. One of Cloud Bigtable’s true strengths is it’s adherence to support for the open source industry standard HBase API. In this Hands-On Lab, you’ll configure database instances and clusters for Cloud Bigtable in the console and then use HBase shell commands to create a schema and populate the table with data.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
