Datasets grow in size as they are increasingly being gathered by cheap and numerous information-sensing mobile devices, aerial, software logs, microphones, wireless sensor networks and cameras. This paper presents a structure for simply, easily and competently parallelizing data mining algorithms for those huge datasets together with the incremental mining. MapReduce concept is use to execute the parallel FP-Growth algorithm by running the windows services parallel. The proposed algorithm eliminates duplicated work and spurious items. Also, it shortens the response time to a query for the set of frequent items. The proposed algorithm is implemented by parallel running of many windows services and experimental results shows tremendous advantages. The proposed algorithm runs 66% faster than the traditional algorithm of data mining. Also, memory utilization reduces by 37%.
