This survey presents the concept of big data. It has a set of techniques and tools that needs new forms of integration to uncover data from different datasets that are complex, and massive scale. It is difficult to process the big data because everyday quintillion data are generated. The challenges include analysis, capture, search, store, transfer, visualize, and privacy violations. This paper focused on big data with different tools and techniques.
