Big Data and Cloud: A Survey

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 325)


Today, the world has become closer due to the development of Internet. More people communicate via Internet, and the volume of data to be handled also grows. Nowadays, we talk about peta- and zettabytes of data and this volume of data needs to be processed and analyzed further which had led to the research field of big data storage and analysis. Cloud computing is another emerging area in which the services such as infrastructure, storage, and software are provided to the consumers on demand basis. In this paper, we discuss about the big data, cloud computing, and how big data are handled in cloud computing environment.
