In recent years, Big Data was defined by the “3Vs” but now there is “5Vs” of Big Data which are also termed as the characteristics of Big Data as follows: 1. Volume: The name ‘Big Data’ itself is related to a size which is enormous. Volume is a huge amount of data.
To determine the value of data, size of data plays a very crucial role. If the volume of data is very large then it is actually considered as a ‘Big Data’. This means whether a particular data can actually be considered as a Big Data or not, is dependent upon the volume of data. Hence while dealing with Big Data it is necessary to consider a characteristic ‘Volume’.
