3Vs of Big Data – CeDAWI

3Vs (volume, variety and velocity) those best describe and characterize different aspects of Large-Scale Data Processing (Big Data).
Volume – refers to the amount of data and is measured in Mega-Bytes, Giga-Bytes, Terra-Bytes, Peta-Bytes, Exa-Bytes and today Zetta-Bytes (and Yotta-Bytes in far future). Currently Digital Universe produced from beginning of the humanity ius estimated around 4.5 ZBs.
Variety – refers to different forms and types of data available online and offline, including structured (Databases, XML, logs, …), semistructured (web pages, email, …), and unstructured (text, images, video, audio, …).
Velocity – refers to increasing speed of data production and consequently performance that data-driven businesses need in order to benefit from their data. The problem is not related with just storing of streams of data, but rather to transforming fast-flowing data into resource that fosters innovation and decision-making process.

The extremely fast grow of Internet Services, Web and Mobile Applications and advance of the related Pervasive, Ubiquity and Cloud Computing concepts have stumulated production of tremendous amounts of data partially available online (call metadata, texts, emails, social media updates, photos, videos, location, etc.). Even with the power of today’s modern computers it still big challenge for business and government organizations to manage, search, analyze, and visualize this vast amount of data as information. Data-Intensive computing which is intended to address this problems become quite intense during the last few years yielding strong results. Data intensive computing framework is a complex system which includes hardware, software, communications, and Distributed File System (DFS) architecture.

Just small part of this huge amount is structured (Databases, XML, logs) or semistructured (web pages, email), over 90% of this information is unstructured, what means data does not have predefined structure and model. Generally, unstructured data is useless unless applying data mining and analysis techniques. At the same time, just in case if you can process and understand your data, this data worth anything, otherwise it becomes useless.
