We are entering into a “big data” era. Due to bottlenecks such as poor scalability, difficulties in installation and maintenance, fault tolerance and low performance in traditional information technology framework, we need to leverage cloud computing techniques and solutions to deal with big data problems. Cloud computing and big data are complementary to each other and have inherent connection of dialectical unity. The breakthrough of big data technologies will not only resolve the aforementioned problems, but also promote the wide application of Cloud computing and the “Internet of Things” technologies. In this chapter, we focus on discussing the development and pivotal technologies of big data, providing a comprehensive description of big data from several perspectives, including the development of big data, the current data-burst situation, the relationship between big data and Cloud computing, and big data technologies. We also discuss related researches in the end.
