Subject Distributed sort
Date Sat, 03 Dec 2005 18:26:05 GMT
In one of the Google Labs whitepapers (, a programming construct
known as MapReduce is used in a variety of jobs/tasks within Google's
operation.  As an example of the application of MapReduce, the whitepaper
refers to Distributed Sorting.

Essentially this looks like a data storage strategy to facilitate a
distributed sort feature.  How does this approach compare to Lucene's
sorting mechanism?
