We would have been processing Big Data long ago had it been possible. There have been many factors that contributed to making it possible. I'll list the technical factors in the order in which they come to mind:
Those are probably the major factors but they have conspired to create a vibrant technology ecosystem, so many products have piled in on top of these to amplify the noise around Big Data and its capability.
Oh, and there's usually business advantage to be gained in mining those terabytes and petabytes, but there was always business advantage in data mining.

Nicely done Robin. I've been stating for a few years now that the rise of Big Data was largely due to declining hardware costs as well as application simplification. You take this even further with your analysis of Hadoop, the move to columnar stores, and to the cloud.
Well reasoned -- nice job.
