In this article, the authors have discussed about the connection between Internet of Things and growth of big data. They have also discussed short reference on the evolution, features, lifecycle, and implementation of Big Data from IoT over the cloud. Internet of Things represents a platform or environment that consists of enormous number of sensors and mediators interconnecting heterogeneous physical devices over the internet. IoT applications are available in many real-world areas such as smart city, smart workplace, smart home, smart transportation and various other ubiquitous computing areas. Using IoT applications generates tremendous amount of data for storage and management in the internet. With the time and research evolution integration of the IoT platforms and cloud comes in the market and IoT platforms data storage and management started shifting to the cloud from the internet connected physical systems for many real-world application areas. Meanwhile when this data becomes huge termed as Big Data. Handling of Big Data over the cloud develops many new areas of research and attention.

2. Background

Internet of Things (IoT) represents a platform that consists of an enormous number of sensors and mediators that interconnect heterogeneous physical objects to the internet. Traditionally, the content available on the internet was generated by the people for the people, which was known as web 1.0. With the time and advancement in networking applications most of the data content available nowadays is dynamically generated by the participants and is being termed as Web 2.0. Semantic web is termed as Web 3.0 (Aghaei, Nematbakhsh, & Farsani, 2012). IoT evolved as the next advancement in this domain, where the things/devices are communicating among themselves in generating valuable results for the people. IoT can be termed as Web 4.0 and beyond, with its support for intelligent connections (Evans, 2011). When smart home appliances communicate together, in making life of the people better and easy, then it is known as IoT. Figure 1 shows the communication paradigm of the IoT devices for communicating data in the internet and also communicating with each other.
