Storage for Analytics services on GCP


Analytics services on GCP feature object storage for columnar data, SSD-backed storage for transactional data, and data-at-rest encryption.


  • ColumnStore Data Warehouse

Analytical Storage

ColumnStore Data Warehouse stores columnar data on object storage through Google Cloud Storage (GCS). Object storage is not pre-allocated. It scales automatically with your needs.

Transactional Storage

By default, 100GB of transactional storage is provisioned at time of service launch.

MariaDB SkySQL features transparent data-at-rest encryption. This feature is not customer-configurable. Google's default encryption is used for transactional storage.

Transactional Storage Type

On GCP, Zonal SSD Persistent Disk is used.
