What is the difference between BigQuery vs BigTable ?

What is BigTable ?

BigTable is a petabyte-scale, fully managed NoSQL database service for large analytical and operational workloads. Bigtable can be as the storage engine for large-scale, low-latency applications as well as throughput-intensive data processing and analytics. Provision and scale to hundreds of petabytes and smoothly handle millions of operations per second. Changes to the deployment configuration are immediate, so there’s no downtime during reconfiguration. Replication adds high availability for live serving apps, and workload isolation for serving vs. analytics

What is BigQuery ?

BigQuery on the other hand is SQL data warehouse (not like traditional database). It means that it is designed to do various (analytical) queries under large amount (order of tera / peta bytes) of data very quickly
