Applied Big Data Workshop: Velocity


 Velocity is the rate at which data accumulates or the rate at which you can upload or download data from your computer to the place the data will reside, whether cloud based or a server. 

What is Velocity?

Big Data projects pay an economic cost for the download of data from the cloud. Therefore, all code that results in a downloaded output must be carefully designed, tested, and debugged prior to upload to prevent waste.
