Definition - What does Volume mean?

Volume is a 3 Vs framework component used to define the size of big data that is stored and managed by an organization. It evaluates the massive amount of data in data stores and concerns related to its scalability, accessibility and manageability.

Techopedia explains Volume

As the most critical component of the 3 Vs framework, volume defines the data infrastructure capability of an organization's storage, management and delivery of data to end users and applications. Volume focuses on planning current and future storage capacity - particularly as it relates to velocity - but also in reaping the optimal benefits of effectively utilizing a current storage infrastructure.

Velocity calls for building a storage infrastructure that does the following:

  • Implements tiered storage resources
  • Removes data duplication for efficient storage utilization
  • Eliminates unused or uncritical data
  • Data backup mechanism to provide alternative failover mechanism
