This was a design question, discuss data structures/ complexities, etc.- AnonymousN January 05, 2016 in United States
There is a huge HashMap (Key-Value store). This is present in storage, dont worry about the Storage.
1. Build its index. Distributed system for indexing. Different cases: Key is a String/ Double/ complex structure, etc. How will you replicate this index structure - whole index is replicated/ parts of index are replicated.
2. How will you synchronize access (read/ write) if there are multiple replicas of the index partition. What if the actual Storage partition also has replicas.
