Table Store provides the following advantages:

  • Scalability

    • Dynamic adjustment of reserved read/write throughput

      When creating a table, you can configure the reserved read/write throughput for an application based on business access conditions. Table Store schedules and reserves resources, based on the table’s reserved read/write throughput, to minimize the resource usage costs. Then, Table Store can dynamically adjust the table’s reserved read/write throughput based on the application.

    • Unlimited capacity

      There is no limit to the amount of data stored in Table Store tables. If a table size increases, Table Store will adjust the data partitions for immediate storage space allocation to the increased table.

  • Data reliability

    Table Store stores multiple data copies across different servers in different racks. If one backup fails, servers with copied data will immediately restore services, achieving zero data loss.

  • High availability

    Through automatic failure detection and data migration, Table Store shields applications from both hardware and network-related faults to deliver high availability.

  • Ease of management

    Table Store automatically manages complex tasks, such as the management of data partitions, software/hardware upgrades, configuration updates, and cluster resizing, allowing you to focus on growing your business.

  • Secure access platform

    Table Store performs identity authentication for each application request, preventing unauthorized data access and ensuring data access security.

  • High consistency

    Table Store ensures high consistency of writing data. Once a successful result is returned for a write operation, applications can read the latest data.

  • Flexible data models

    Table Store tables do not require a fixed format. The column numbers of each row, and the value types in columns of the same name but different rows, can be different. Furthermore, Table Store supports multiple data types, such as Integer, Boolean, Double, String, and Binary.

  • Pay-As-You-Go

    Table Store only charges fees based on the actual resources you have reserved and used.

  • Monitoring integration

    The Table Store console provides real-time monitoring information, including the requests number per second and the average response latency.
