'BigTable' Talk with google engineer

@ google open source talkfest.

Edward Yoon :

IMO, BigTable array structure seems similar to the multi-dimensional database, so I thought that a data layer for bulk/analytical processing. Can you tell me how to use BigTable at google? The BigTable is suitable for storing any kind of data?

Google Engineer :

BigTable is one of the storage solution, and used for all sorts of things. It is adequate for the high frequency read/write characteristics, so BigTable suits with real-time service and large scale processing. But, There's no objective data.

Edward Yoon :

Ok, The BigTable entries are expressed as row-column-time, So I thought it can be used for Financial engineering, Topological Algebra, Linear Algebra processing. Can you tell me some exemplification if it's true?

Google Engineer :

Yes, it's possible But, that is (some exemplification) out of my ability.
