Take a look at http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/HowManyMapsAndReduces

Things start to become a little more clear when you think about
Hadoop-size datasets.  It's common that you usually care about tuning
the number of simultaneous jobs running on a single machine (one per
core?  one per hard drive? one per <whatever>?), and the total number
is just "many."
