Imagine you have to get track of some kind of traffic, for example,
lets supose that you have millions of those hits; you will have to
have a few servers to
receive the notifications of the impression of an ad.
After the end of the day, you will have that info across a bunch of
servers; mostly you will have
a record of each impression indicating the Identifier (id) of the Ad.
To this info to become useful, you will have to agregate it; for
example to know which is the Ad with most impressions.
You will have to iterate over all servers and MAP the info into one
place; now that you have all the info,
you will have to REDUCE it; so you will have one record per Ad
identifier indicating the TOTAL impressions of that day.
That's the basic idea. It's like aftermath of "Divide and Conquer".
Hope this will be useful.
