Can anyone please tell me how is clustering is used in data management?

I was recently asked this question and was left totally stumped.

    $\begingroup$ Too vague. Do you mean clustering like how a table is organized physically, or clustering in the machine learning sense? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Are you sure they did not mean the other sense? This is such a vague and frankly poor question. $\endgroup$

This is a wide open question, so I am not sure which aspects you are most interested in. Here are some Wikipedia articles you can get started with.
