Abstract

Gaia is a European Space Agency mission that will deal with large volumes of data that have to be processed at, and transferred between, different data processing centers (DPCs) in Europe. Managing the data and the associated databases will be a significant challenge. This paper presents the different data management configurations that have been evaluated at the Gaia DPCs in order to cope with the requirements of Gaia’s complex data handling.
