Cloud Computing and Big Data
As you may expect, the relationship between big data and the cloud is quite complex, but very efficient for all parties involved. Normally, big data can be limited by storage space, processing time, and cost. However, cloud computing can compensate for all of this; with a much larger amount of storage, faster processing, and cheaper cost, cloud computing is big data's best friend.
No longer do analysts and programmers need to run simulations and execute thousands of lines of code just to wait hours on hours to see a bug or two crashed their program meaning they'd have to restart the entire operation. By utilizing the cloud, big data is able to be run and processed in a fraction of the amount of time it used to take.
While it's possible to have one without the other, industry trends are pointing towards the relationship between cloud computing and big data being the next big boom; now that we have systems and services capable of analyzing all of this data, we can continue to improve the process.
So what does this mean for synthetic data? Larger and larger sets of synthetic data can also be used in combination with cloud computing for very similar results; machine learning to train and test models can be run with larger synthetic datasets allowing the job to be done with both more precision and speed. Artificial intelligence solutions can be vastly improved just by taking into account the relationship of cloud computing and large amounts of synthetic data, and we loo forward to the day that they are.
