Related Technologies

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Computer Science book series (BRIEFSCOMPUTER)


In order to gain a deep understanding of big data, this chapter will introduce several fundamental technologies that are closely related to big data, including cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), data center, and Hadoop. For each related technology, a general introduction is first provided highlighting their key features. Then the relationship between the technology and big data is examined in detail.
