The Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST), when completed, will be the largest, most capable solar telescope in the world. Currently under construction on the summit of Haleakala on Maui, the DKIST will enable foundational insights into the physics of the Sun's photosphere, chromosphere, and corona. Its suite of first-light instruments will produce approximately 25TB of raw and processed data per day, with bursts up to 50TB. These data rates will require a scalable, flexible data and computing architecture that enables and promotes inquiry and discovery. We describe the DKIST data streams and provide an overview of the proposed data center architecture and resources that will allow users to fully exploit this unique world-class facility.
