Characteristics of Big Data

So What would be the characteristics of big data ? How it looks ? How it behaves?  Who Generates it?

BIGDATA is Everywhere..!!



The above picture says all about the bigdata and how its generating.

Practically its everywhere now.


  • Lots of data is being collected
  • and warehoused
  • Web data, e-commerce
  • purchases at department/
  • grocery stores
  • Bank/Credit Card
  • transactions
  • Social Network

Then, How Much of Data??

  • 2.7 ZB of data exists in digital universe today
  • Google processes 20 PB data per day
  • Facebook has 500 TB of user data per day
  • eBay has 500+ TB of data per day
  • CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) generates 1PB per second, with 10,000 scientists from more than 100 countries.

Lets See the Characteristics of  BIGDATA

3V’s  of BIGDATA:

  1. Volume
  2. Velocity
  3. Variety




Few People also Say BIGDATA is 4V

Apart from Velocity,Volume and Variety ,Veracity also comes into the picture when  you speak about the Bigdata



Lets look deep into this how 4v is classified:





  • Big data is similar to ‘small data’,  but bigger
  • But having data bigger it requires different approaches: techniques, tools, architectures.
  • With an aim to solve new problems Or old problems in better way.

Big Bigger Biggest – What is BIGDATA?

What is BIGDATA?

Recent Days the word BigData turning out to be very fancy lets see what’s all about Bidata.

Big data is a popular term used to describe the exponential growth and availability of data, both structured and unstructured. And big data may be as important to business – and society – as the Internet has become. Why? More data may lead to more accurate analyses.

More accurate analyses may lead to more confident decision making. And better decisions can mean greater operational efficiencies, cost reductions and reduced risk.

In Reality We generate Bigdata, Sounds Tough to believe it but how? Lets look into the deep insights of the stats coming from IBM.


Shocking Big numbers in just 60 seconds .


So What’s Big Data?

Big data is similar to ‘small data’,  but bigger. Big data is a collection of data sets so large and complex that it becomes difficult to process using on-hand DBMS tools or traditional data processing applications.
