What is big Data?

Big data, the name itself suggests that it is kind of data which is huge/big. We need to know which data makes to that big/huge level.


#What is Big Data ?
According to IDC ( International Data Corporation ), we define the data as big data based on three parameters viz. Volume, Velocity and Variety.
Volume refers to size of the data. Eg : Millions of tweets posted for every minute
Velocity refers to how fast you need analysis on that data. Eg : In IPL (Cricket) match you need to check which team has more tweets and to display that information, it need to query based on (#CSK) tag or any team tag.
Variety refers to what type of data you have, text/image/audio/sensorinformation/video or any mixture of those. Eg : Facebook is processing your status message(text),photo ( image) and video formats. The data may be structured or unstructured.

According SAS ( another company ) variability and complexity are the two key terms.
Variability refers to how variable that data size and the time at which we …

Federer hopes he can stop Rafa

It's not the Federer that I've seen earlier this week when he lost to Nishikori. He definitely brought back his own game in last 4 matches. And he is really looking forward to another match against his long time rival Rafael Nadal.

Nadal survived from Gulbis scare

Everybody can't do same work

Yes, it's true. Everybody can't do same work, each one have their special interest in something.

If everybody doing same work we can't live. For example, the software engineer feels his job is ONLY the best job that a human do and asks everyone to do same, who will make food to survive, who will repair your computer when it stopped working. or if farmer feel everybody should do ONLY , then who will do business and give money to him. So what I'm saying is, love your work and respect what others do, most of them are not feeling ashamed of they are  doing.

Novak ends Rafa's long winning run at Monte-Carlo.

Before the match, it is more than half guarantee that Rafa will win for the ninth time in nine years. And all of sudden Djokovic started very strongly with almost 4 bagel points, but Rafa survived and looked like he would be extending first set to tie breaker. But Novak didn't let that happen. Novak bagged first set with 6-2.

it's Not an Accident to Kalpana Chawla and her team..!!

It should not be happen, they would have sent the rescue mission to save them.

NASA people were aware of what was going to happen for Columbia. Wayne Hale , the former project leader revealed the hidden secrets about the Columbia  ship disaster.

Hale wrote on his blog that he was told by Jon Harpold, then Nasa's director of mission operations: "You know, there is nothing we can do about damage to the thermal protection system. If it has been damaged it's probably better not to know. I think the crew would rather not know.

"Don't you think it would be better for them to have a happy successful flight and die unexpectedly during entry than to stay on orbit, knowing that there was nothing to be done, until the air ran out?"

At the time, Hale stressed, Harpold's words were purely hypothetical because the space agency's engineers were working on what he called "the wrong problem". They were looking at whether the briefcase-sized piece of foam, which…

Typical B.Tech student( found in Hyd)

The B.tech students of Hyderabad are feeling shame for their travel mode. One guy expressed his condolence for getting into an auto just for 10 min to go to college. Daily he came by his overacted bike.

Unforunately  Fortunately today the bike was not available to him. So he decided to go by auto along with his friend who usually listen to his so called funny comments. The guy sat inside the auto and trying to hide his face because, someone would see him in the auto from the passing college bus. And he didn't stop commenting about his situation for the next 10min.



This is pathetic situation at student level. What the hell is going  in the home no one knows. this is result of freedom, misuse of freedom. The majority percentage of population is youth in the country. and i'm sure majority of the youth is like this. Concerning about funny things and just leaving the main issue., their life.  Mean while parents are busy in earning the money by giving their full efforts to make their …
