Definition of Big Data

Big data exceeds normal database capabilities and processing it can't be done by conventional methods.

Big data comes in many forms (e.g. pictures, videos) and its form can't be strictly defined. It can be structured or not. Big data's volume can be anything from few megabytes to millions of terabytes. Big data also appears in many forms. It can be constant stream of information or some batched event.
