Abstract: We present our activity on making the Subaru Data Archive accessible through the Japanese Virtual Observatory (JVO) system. There is a lot of demand to use the archived Subaru data from various fields of astronomers. For users who are not familiar with Subaru data processing, the data reduction should be done for them, or at least should be doable without precise knowledge of the instrumentís characteristics and the environment when the data were taken. For those purposes a data quality assessment system, NAQATA, has been developed (Nakata & Enoki 2007) and science-ready image data are provided for some SuprimeCam data by the SMOKA data service (Enoki & Nakata 2007). The JVO portal will provide to access to the reduced data, and a way to reduce the raw data with little effort through the user-friendly web browser I/F. To provide such a CPU-intensive service, we have developed a GRID computing system. The architecture of this Subaru Data and Analysis system is discussed.
