J. Kantor, T. Axelrod (LSST Corp), LSST Data Management Team
The LSST scientific requirements for a very deep, wide field survey with controlled systematics and rapid transient alerting drive the LSST Data Management system capabilities and performance. This system is a highly distributed, scalable, and reliable system that acquires the scientific data, transports it from mountain to base to archive center, reduces the data and assesses its quality, and publishes the data for broad access. Designing and implementing such a system requires advanced scientific algorithms, a layered architecture providing for extensibility and technology evolution, high-performance computing, storage, and networking technologies, and the rigor of a formal development process.
