Abstract
The Daniel K Inouye Solar Telescope, under construction in Maui, is designed to perform high-resolution spectropolarimetric visible and infrared measurements of the Sun, and will annually produce 3 PB of data, via 5x108 images and 2x1011 metadata elements requiring calibration, long-term data management, and open and free distribution. After briefly describing the DKIST and its instrument suite, we provide an overview of functions that the DKIST Data Center will provide, and focus on major challenges in its development. We conclude by discussing approach and mention some technologies that the Data Center team is using to develop a petascale computational and data storage resource to support this unique world-class DKIST facility and support its long-term scientific and operational goals.
