Few years ago, Most of data we used are by the computers and it is between their own organisation or in their private space. As technology revolution occurs, technology started to reach our hands in different forms like mobile, laptop, tablet,etc.. Due to it’s advancement, it demands for heterogeneous data and we started to share that data to the World. For example, mobile which we first used for call, then we started to send sms, mms, email, video and audio file, etc.. And we promoted the normal phones to Smartphones.
Soon this data gets manipulated and reached the exponential growth. The data started to demand the resources. So, to solve this demand, we started to build new technologies to extend resource efficiency. The resource which we are talking are storage, memory and CPU. At some point, there comes a problem where we can’t upgrade our resources due to the various factors like cost, space, maintenance, etc.. But the company which rely on data can’t say their customer that they can’t accommodate further data and at the same time, Company also can’t keep on investing on resources.
Social Media’s growth has greatest influence causing this problem. Each and Everyday, the users in social media share large amount of data within them. User’s count keeps on increasing. This brings new way allocating data is required.
Data keeps on growing and it has no end….
This problem is referred as Big Data. Due to this Big data, we have several problems like volume and velocity. Since the data grows the capacity to store the data also increases. And then we have another problem, that is I/O operation done on data will be slow. The speed at which the data stores and retrieve is delayed.
some real time facts:
Almost 4.57 billion people were active internet users as of July 2020, encompassing 59 percent of the global population. China, India and the United States rank ahead all other countries
Social media usage is one of the most popular online activities. In 2020, an estimated 3.6 billion people were using social media worldwide, a number projected to increase to almost 4.41 billion in 2025.
The most popular social networks usually display a high number of user accounts or strong user engagement. For example, market leader Facebook was the first social network to surpass 1 billion monthly active users, whereas recent newcomer Pinterest was the fastest independently launched site to reach 10 million unique monthly visitors. The majority of social networks with more than 100 million users originated in the United States, but European services like VK or Chinese social networks Qzone and Renren have also garnered mainstream appeal in their areas due to local context and content.
Social network usage by consumers is highly diverse: platforms such as Facebook or Google+ are highly focused on exchanges between friends and family and are constantly pushing interaction through features like photo or status sharing and social games. Other social networks like Tumblr or Twitter are all about rapid communication and are aptly termed microblogs. Some social networks focus on community; others highlight and display user-generated data.
Thus the data plays vital role and it inevitable and to manage the data is he biggest arising day by day And one does it more perfectly wins the competition.
