No this is supposed to be task of the filesystem. Here you can have HDFS (you just put the file on HDFS and it is accessible from everywhere and flink tries to execute computation on the nodes where it is stored) or an object store, such as Swift or S3 (with the limitation that the file is then loaded by flink into the cluster, so there is no data locality as with HDFS).
