Zookeeper is for?


[A question from internal discussion]

Hello Sandeep,

A little clarification needed please?

In the video, you mentioned that zookeeper is essentially a central store of key-value which allows distributed systems to coordinate.

So I was wondering how the question in the exercises (see below please) had the answer as a datastore for storing small variables.

Are you saying ‘small variables’ because of the key-value pairs please?


I have corrected the question:

Zookeeper is for storing small data because it keep the entire data in RAM and it keeps copy of the whole data on all machines.
