Big Data has become a nontrivial problem in the field of business as well as in scientific applications. It becomes more complex with the growth of data and scaling of data entry points. These points refer to the remote and local sources where huge data is generated within tiny slots of time. This may also refer to the end user devices including computers, sensors and wireless gadgets. As far as scientific applications are concerned, for example, Geo Physics applications or real time weather forecast requires heavy data and complex mathematical computations. Such applications generate large chunks of data that needs to transfer it through conventional computer networks. Problem with Big Data applications emerges when heavy amount of data is transferred or downloaded (files or objects) from remote locations. The results drawn in real-time from large data files/sets become obsolete due to the fact data keeps on adding new data into the files and the downloading by remote machines remains slower as compared to file growth. This paper addresses this problem and provides possible solution through ClientNet Cluster of remote computers, Specialized Cluster of Computers, as one of the alternative to deal with real-time data analytics under the hard constraints of network. The idea is moving code, for analytic processing, to the remotely available big size files and returning the results to distributed remote locations. The Big Data file does not need to move around network for uploading or downloading whenever the processing is required from distributed locations.
