To my understanding, how big is BIG DATA?
Along with the time, data volume is growing exponentially. Earlier we used to talk about Megabytes or Gigabytes. But time has arrived when we talk about data volume in terms of terabytes, petabytes and also zettabytes!. Global data volume was around 1.8ZB in 2011 and is expected to be 7.9ZB in 2015. It is also known that the global information doubles in every two years!. Data volume is changing rapidly with the time as every individual organization maintains their own data for business reporting.
