Abstract: This paper presents the main approaches related to Big Data. Big Data concept introduces changes in three dimensions: (1) data types, (2) speed of data accumulation and (3) data volume. Big Data represents a new generation of technologies and architectures for extracting value from the very large volumes of data that have a wide variety, and allow real time processing and analysis. This article presents Big Data sets, architectures, and technologies.

Keywords: Big Data, Hadoop, NoSQL, Big Data sets.
