At MegaPivot we chose Google App Engine as our preferred Platform as a Service provider and Google BigQuery as our big data database solution. Main reasons for us were the following:

  • We love Python and Google Cloud Services are very friendly to Pythonistas
  • Google Cloud Services are incredibly user friendly and easy to use: that make us 10x more productive and let us focus on developing our products rather than running the infrastructure
  • System Administration is difficult and expensive to do on our own, Google does it better than us

MegaPivot is a web-based big data analytics application built on Google BigQuery infrastructure.
