What datatypes are supported by Big Objects?

I am new to Salesforce and trying to create Big object first on sandbox. We are archiving the records from a Custom object to Big Object. The custom object has all kind of fields such as 
- Date/Time
- Picklist
- Number
- Formula
- Checkbox
- URL
- Lookup
- Percent
- Master-Detail and more... 

Does Big object supports all the mentioned data types? I went through some documentation avaialble to deploy the Big object but was not able to find the answer to this Question.
Thank you
