Billy Bossworth for InvestorPlace:
it involves the challenges associated with distribution/complexity, variety, volume and velocity of data that are not suited to traditional relational databases.
Compared with the 3V or 4V definitions of Big Data, this one:
- adds distribution, which makes sense considering Big Data is about volume and velocity
- add complexity, which feels like a qualification of having to deal with the 3-4 V’s
- rules out traditional relational databases. I think this last one is just to make sure someone won’t ask if they can address Big Data with Oracle. Or MySQL
