Data analysis and archiving system

In relation to the new data acquisition system being introduced with the new detector controller (see below) and the planned upgrade of the set of FITS keyword for the acquired data (see above) that will provide a complete description of the obtained data we are are now designing and implementing the computer system that will be the backbone for the system that will manage the data analysis and archiving of the data. Specifically, where to store data (beyond the general archive this can be ftp directories for ToO observations, service observing programs or general calibration data) and what to do with the data (which beyond quicklook analysis and quality control programs could also be full blown data reduction pipelines). The main issue would be to make this system such that it does not interfere when the observing system, while it should provide easy access and timely results.
