The extremely fast grow of Internet Services, Web and Mobile Applications and advance of the related Pervasive, Ubiquity and Cloud Computing concepts have stumulated production of tremendous amounts of data available online. Event with the power of today's modern computers it still big challenge for business and government organizations to manage, search, analyze, and visualize this vast amount of data as information. Data-Intensive computing which is intended to address this problems become quite intense during the last few years yielding strong results. Data intensive computing framework is a complex system which includes hardware, software, communications, and Distributed File System (DFS) architecture. This paper is giving comprehensive information on how distributed file system supports this approach of processing extra-large volumes of data. It is definitely expected that this work will contribute to future research on similar and related topics as spin off from this study.
