This paper presents the overview of the current trends of Big data against the computing scenario from different aspects. Some of the important aspect includes the Exascale, the computing power and the kind of applications which offer the Big data. This starts with the current computing hardware constraint against the need of the rising Big data applications. We highlight the issues and challenges of energy requirement, software complexity, hardware failure, fault tolerant computing, and communication. As the complexity of computation is going to rise in the future. The paper also highlights the future direction of Big computing systems for Bioinformatics, social media, hardware and software requirements, data intensive computation and then towards GPU era.
