Big Data is now seen by IT and Business professionals as the new BI messiah. Recently, data-focused companies like 10gen and Delphix procured large funding. But how Big is Big Data?

Usually, 'big data' depicts working with enormous data sets that are difficult to manage with standard database tools. So, we have several companies racing to produce software and tools to manage, store, and analyze these data sets.  Big data startups like Cloudera, Palantir, Datahero, and Precog have also seen investments. Besides this, industry leaders like Google, Yahoo, and HP are providing their own solutions too.

HP-owned Autonomy has recently tried to explain the often misunderstood concept of “big data” with an infographic. Autonomy’s private cloud surpassed 50 petabytes in April. The company has also released new tools focused on big data.

Take a look at this interesting infographic:
