|In this paper, we present distributed generalized clustering algorithms that can handle large scale data across multiple machines in spite of straggling or unreliable machines. We propose a novel data assignment scheme that enables us to obtain global information about the entire data even when some machines fail to respond with the results of the assigned local computations. The assignment scheme leads to distributed algorithms with good approximation guarantees for a variety of clustering and dimensionality reduction problems.
