Intrigued by all the hype around Big Data? Well, Big Data is for real. Just consider these two examples:
- Facebook handles more than 250 million photo uploads and the interactions of 800 million active users with more than 900 million objects (pages, groups, etc.) – each day.
- More than 5 billion people are calling, texting,
tweeting and browsing on
mobile phones worldwide
