Big Data: A Brief investigation on NoSQL Databases Roshni Bajpayee MATS School of InformationTechnology Raipur (C.G) firstname.lastname@example.org Sonali Priya Sinha Vinod Kumar MATS School of InformationTechnology Raipur (C.G) Sonalipriya.email@example.com ABSTRACT As the usage of information technology has increased in the world, the Data generation from various resources has unexpectedly increased. The technology for handling the vast amount of data has not developed as compared to the data generation. Traditional database systems are unable to handle the increased volume of data due to its volume, Variety, Complexity, variability. To deal with this problem, Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) like technology is developed. The data to be processed exists in different format that is why the traditional relational database management System is suitable for the big data. To deal with the unstructured data various database tools have been developed. This paper mainly focuses on the various NoSQL Database tools that are available to deal with different types of data. It also includes a brief comparison between (NTFS and HDFS) and (NoSQL and Traditional Relational Database). MATS School of InformationTechnology Raipur (C.G) firstname.lastname@example.org continuously increasing nearby it will be from petabytes to zettabytes. Networking site stores large amount of data it is very definitely difficult to be handled using traditional system. Velocity  Velocity deals with the rate at which the data is coming from various sources. This property is not being confined to the rate of incoming data but also rate at which the data flows. Keywords NOSQL Database, Big data, Big Data Tools, HDFS, NTFS, Hadoop 1. INTRODUCTION Big Data is a term large amount Data. Which is important new technologies and architecture? Data capture and access third party very easily such as Facebook, other. Big data is a term for large data sets, more different and complex structure with the difficulties of storing, analyze and visualize for further processes or results. The process of research into large amounts of data to reveal hidden patterns and secret correlations named as big data analytics. This useful information for companies or organizations with the help of gaining richer and deeper insights and getting an advantage over the competition. For this reason, big data implementations need to be analyzed and executed as accurately as possible. Big Data applications have high Volume, high Variety and high Velocity. Some basic properties associated with big data are as follows: Variety  Data being generated is not of one category as it not only contains the traditional data but also the semi structured data from different resources like e-mail, Document, Web Pages, Web Log Files, social media sites, etc. Volume  This characteristic of big data presents the size of the data generated. In the age of information technology, the data is Figure 1: Characteristics of Big Data Variability  Variability considers the inconsistencies of the data flow data loads become challenging to be maintained. Especially with the increase in usage of the social networking. Complexity  It is very important aspect of big data because it is quite an undertaking to link, match, cleanse and transform data across system coming from various sources. Value  User can run certain queries against the data stored and then user got important results from the filtered data obtained and can also rank it according it the dimensions. 2. DAWN OF NOSQL  The name “NoSQL” was primarily used in 1998 by Carlo Strozzi  for the Relational database management system, Strozzi No SQL. Although, Strozzi coined the term basically to differentiate to his solution from other RDMBS solutions which make use of SQL . He used the term NoSQL just for the reason that his database did not expose a SQL interface. Now, the term NoSQL (Not Only SQL)  has come to express a huge set of databases which do not have characteristics of conventional relational databases and which are usually not queried with SQL. The term reenergized in the recent years with giant enterprises and companies like Google, Amazon, Apache by their own data storage centers to amass and process large amounts of data as they emerge in their applications and stirring up other vendors to take part in it. The main characteristics of NoSQL databases are horizontal scaling, replicating and partitioning data over several servers. In recent years, different kinds of NoSQL databases have been produced mainly by practitioners and web enterprise to fulfill their particular requirements regarding performance, maintenance, scalability and feature-set. In the present scenario, our need has changed unlike the some years later we were need. Therefore, currently NoSQL has emerged as a solution for today’s data store requirements and has been a subject of talk and research. 3. COMPARATIVE OVERVIEW Today, People are living in the periphery of big data where each and every moment the data is increasing unexpectedly. It is the massive amount of data (structured, semi-structured and unstructured) being generated with certain velocity from different variety of sources. Traditional File System (TFS) is unable to handle the big data efficiently; therefore Distributed File System (DFS) is taken as a solution over the TFS. Apache Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) is playing an important role in the field of big data where commodity hardware is used as data nodes for processing data. Hadoop principally contains of two parts: File System (Hadoop Distributed File System) Programming Paradigm (Map Reduce) Block size lies between 512 B and 64 kB Block size is fixed to 64 MB by default 1 GB file will be split into 16384 blocks 1 GB file will be split into 16 blocks With seek time of 0.1ms, 1GB will be accessed in 16s With seek time of 0.1ms, 1GB will be accessed in 16ms Used for write many read many access Used for write once read many access Data will not be replicated Data is always replicated Scaling up is not possible Scaling wide and scaling deep is possible Table 2: Comparison between NoSQL Database (HDFS) and Traditional Relational Database  SL NoSQL Database (HDFS) 1. NoSQL is unstructured way of storing the data. 2. The amount of data stored does not depend on the Physical memory of the system. It can be scaled horizontally as per the requirement. It can effectively handle million and billion of records It is never advised for transaction management 3. 3.1 Hadoop Distributed File System Hadoop Distributed File System is a File System Developed for keeping huge files with streaming data access patterns, running on clusters on commodity hardware. HDFS block size is much larger than that of traditional file system to reduce the number of disk seeks. 4. 5. Processing time depends upon number of cluster machines 6. Availability is preferred over consistency. 7. It follows CAP theorem. 8. It scales horizontally as well as vertically. There is no need of normalization. 3.2 MapReduce MapReduce is the programming model which runs in the HDFS environment. It consists of mainly two parts- The Mapper and Reducer. Hence, it performs mainly two types of works MAP Task by Mapper and Reduce task by the Reducer. This part is responsible for executing the program in distributed environment and collecting the aggregated result from different distributed nodes i.e. Commodity hardwares. Table 1: Comparison between NTFS and HDFS  NTFS (New Technology File System) HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System) Files are stored in local file system Files are distributed across the cluster machines 9. Traditional Relational Database RDBMS database completely structured way storing of data. The amount of data stored mainly depends on the Physical memory of the system. It can Effectively handle few thousands of records It is best suited for transaction management The processing time depends on the server machine’s configuration Consistency is preferred over availability It follows ACID property of transaction It scales better vertically Tables must be normalized. 4.

CONCLUSION In the age of information technology, data is a very important to extract the useful information. It is obvious that data exists in different format. The processing of big data is still a challenging task. There is no universal tool which can handle enormous and data of various formats. Document oriented, Key-Value pair, Column and graph type of NoSQL databases are developed to handle this variety of data. The summarized discussion about different NoSQL databases is helpful in selection of suitable NoSQL database. 6.
