This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
I don't think they mean they same thing. large-data seems to cover the use of "regular" software (Spreadsheets, Web servers, etc.) in dealing with very large data sets. big-data covers a different set of topics. namely the use of software products that were designed to be parallel and scalable in the first place.
large-data should probably be kept as-is since it does indicate a special kind of problem.
Or, perhaps more appropriately from the Urban Dictionary (I know this isn't a canonical resource but I couldn't resist...)
A tag with no meaning has no use and so should be burninated and blacklisted if it returns.
Failing that, and reducing my Cabal tendencies somewhat, if they're going to be kept around they should probably be synonymised to big-data, which doesn't yet exist but is more in keeping with the current practice of using a hyphen to split words in tag names.
