Big data concerns large-volume, complex, growing data sets with multiple, autonomous sources. With the fast development of networking, data storage, and the data collection capacity, big data is now rapidly expanding in all science and engineering domains, including physical, biological and biomedical sciences. However, big data entails a huge commitment of hardware and processing resources, making adoption costs of big data technology prohibitive to small and medium sized businesses. Cloud computing offers the promise of big data implementation to small and medium sized businesses.
