The Big Data in 21st century is a gold mine just waiting to be harnessed

Big Data?

The term “big data” refers to data that is so large, fast or complex that it’s difficult or impossible to process using traditional methods.

So who has the most data?

The answer is fairly obvious and you might have guessed it correctly too. Google, Amazon, facebook have the most data for handling. According to a study google currently process 20 petabytes of data everyday and in total they have to handle something between 10 to 15 Exabytes of storage.

So where do they store the data?

All the big tech giants who have to handle such huge amount of data usually own their datacenters. So you can consider these datacenters as big chunks of hard disk but the story isn’t that simple.

  1. Velocity of the data.

Why do we even store this data?

Some people often think that why do we even need this data. Why not just dump it and forget about it?

So what is the solution?

The solution of this Big Data problem lies in distributed storage systems. Most tech giants like facebook harness the power of distributed storage to store and provide the zero latency services.
