Abstract: The Square Kilometer Array (SKA) telescope, which is planned for construction starting in 2019, is currently in its pre-construction design phase. It is planned that high level science data products will be created by the SKA Science Data Processor (SDP) computing systems located in both Perth and Cape Town with these then stored and made available for the research community to use. Due to the nature of the core SDP systems including base computational load, energy consumption constraints and production 24-7 operational requirements, user analysis of generated data products will have to occur on other systems. The SDP DELIV element work package is developing requirements and an architecture for how data could be accessed by scientists and how data should be moved efficiently to globally distributed resources for analysis. This paper describes the current status of work by the SDP DELIV team.
