I was wondering if someone could tell me when you would need the "Big Data" technology? How large should the database be? How big are the tables and how many rows?
For instance, lets say i had 450 million rows in a table and where experiencing performance problems. Would implementing Big Data be a solution to this type of problem?
It is more then just how much data you have.... it a *V model that is commonly used to define what big data is....
please have a look at this blogpost which might explain it a bit more for you: http://johanlouwers.blogspot.nl/2013/07/adding-v-to-four-v-big-data-thinking.html
