Abstract: AstroCloud is a cyber-Infrastructure for Astronomy Research initiated by Chinese Virtual Observatory (China-VO) under funding support from NDRC (National Development and Reform commission) and CAS (Chinese Academy of Sciences). Tasks such as proposal submission, proposal peer-review, data archiving, data quality control, data release and open access, Cloud based data processing and analyzing, will be all supported on the platform. It will act as a full lifecycle management system for astronomical data and telescopes. Achievements from international Virtual Observatories and Cloud Computing are adopted heavily. In this paper, backgrounds of the project, key features of the system, and latest progresses are introduced.
