Distributed sequential pattern mining is the data mining method to discover sequential patterns from large sequential database on distributed environment. It is used in many wide applications including web mining, customer shopping record, biomedical analysis, scientific research, etc. A large research has been done on sequential pattern mining on various distributed environments like grid, Hadoop, cluster, cloud, etc. Different types of sequential pattern mining can be performed are sequential patterns, maximal sequential patterns, closed sequences, constraint based and time interval based sequential patterns.
