Distributed Computing with Locks


Having known of the prevalence of BigData in real-world scenarios, it’s time for us to understand how they work. This is a very important topic in understanding the principles behind system design and coordination among machines in big data. So let’s dive in.


Consider a scenario where there is a resource of data, and there is a worker machine that has to accomplish some task using that resource. For example, this worker is to process the data by accessing that resource. Remember that the data source is having huge data; that is, the data to be processed for the task is very huge.
