Let's conclude the MapReduce system's design.

We'll cover the following

Main highlights

Some of the main highlights of this MapReduce system’s design include:

  1. MapReduce is a simplified and less-complicated model, even for programmers without experience. It’s easy to parallelize and distribute computations among workers and achieve fault tolerance. It achieves this by hiding the details of data distribution, parallelization, fault tolerance, locality optimization, and load balancing from the programmer. The MapReduce model is applicable to many use cases.
