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.
