Optimizing BigQuery

  1. Limiting query costs: Using the maximum billed bytes configuration, you can stop any query larger than the limit set from being executed, making the query fail and not charging you when attempting to run it. The same limitation can be enforced on users, making it easier to limit the resources used by your team.
  2. Batch loading data vs. Streaming inserts: Often, companies choose streaming inserts, making data available in seconds instead of hours. This benefit, while worthwhile for many operational tasks, may not always be necessary. Unless the data being used is constantly manipulated in real-time, you can save by swapping to batch loading data, which comes free of cost.
  3. On-demand vs. Flat rate: Businesses and projects that work with a steady, high workload may find that the flexibility of an on-demand plan may become expensive over time. It’s worth checking how much on-demand is costing you and compare it to flat rate prices. You might find the price more friendly for your needs while offering unlimited bytes processing at a fixed price.
