Abstract In modern era the volume of data is enlarging day by day. It has become impossible to handle this data without data mining there are different techniques-clustering is one of them. Clustering is a process of grouping same type of objects. In distributed data clustering these groups are distributed over different sites and then centralized at global sit. The purpose of distributing these clusters is efficiency, performance, communication cost and storage limit. There are many different techniques and algorithms are available for distributed data clustering. These algorithms are divided into two categories-synchronous and asynchronous that further has some sub-categories such as k-means, k harmonic means, DBSCAN, PCA based and many more. The paper also describes some important merits of distributed data clustering as well as demerits.
