In today's Live Session, we discussed a very common scenario - let's say you're done with an algorithms question and the interviewer asks you -
How will you handle this if your data doesn't fit in a single machine?
Or, a very common interview question:
How would you sort a large file?
We discussed this in great detail and went over a design. We scaled our design upto one point - if the file can fit in a single machine's Hard Drive.
Next week, we will scale it even further - if the input file is distributed across 100 machines.
