Big Table runs some of the largest big data features currently in Google
Big Table is a NoSQL to make huge data sets meaningful for the business. This is not going to be cheap, it requires 4 nodes and you are going to need to spend a great deal more than Azure DocumentDB or NoSQL Tables to get going.
Microsoft has a long way to catch up to Microsoft and AWS. But they certainly have the experience of Big Data behind them, Google was doing Big Data before we were all saying it.
