Look inside
In this liveProject, you’ll build an efficient cloud-based storage layer. Your pipeline requires two storage layers: long-term storage that’s suited for backup and recovery, and a hot layer that can be queried and visualized without latency. You’ll implement a Coldest-Storage layer for long-term, and then modify the Cloud BigQuery Table Schema for enriched querying and data analysis.
This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

book resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books for 90 days.
