I think this is indeed a common and common sense approach.

Traditionally this has actually been done by even simpler systems,
like writing log files on hosts, beaming them up to a central
location, and processing aggregates that way. But key/value stores can
be used to reduce latency that is the problematic part of simple
log-based aggregation.
