Abstract: In the proposed Virtual Observatory (VO), there is an urgent need for a prototype distributed archive that a) uses standard interfaces to the outside world, b) contains a parallel and scalable query agent, and c) can serve as a virtual data grid node in the VO. We propose to use the current SDSS Science Archive as a basis for developing such an archive template for the VO. This effort will involve extending the current capabilities of the Science Archive query agent as well as redesigning certain aspects of it. We describe the steps that this effort will entail.
