New Poll: Largest Dataset Analyzed/Data Mined?
New KDnuggets Poll is asking: What was the largest dataset you analyzed / data mined? Will Gigabyte range dominate for another year or will Big Data miners share increase?
This poll is closed - here are the results:
Where is Big Data? For most, Largest Dataset Analyzed is in laptop-size GB range
Here are the results of the same poll in 2014: Largest Dataset Analyzed surprisingly stable.
The 2014 poll results fit a pattern that remained surprisingly stable since 2012:
- over 50% of answers are in the Gigabyte range (median answer between 11 and 100 GB for each each year 2012-14)
- a small number (2-3%) of Big Data miners are working with internet-scale data sets (over 100 PB), at companies like Google and Facebook.
- a small but significant gap, with almost no answers in 1-100 PB range, which separates analysts who work with Terabyte-size commercial data warehouses and 100 PB+ Internet-scale data stores.
