Can you please explain 'volumes'?

When we are dealing with large volumes of data (ranging in the terabytes), operations such as creating an index can take a long time—perhaps hours or even days. When the operation finishes, the index contents must be consistent with the contents of the relation, and all further updates to the relation must maintain the index.

Volume = size in three dimensions

So large volumes = a lot., A large amount
Small volumes = a little, a small amount

Data does not have 3-D volume, like water, so this is figurative.
But it does take up space in MB, GB etc, so it has 'size'.
