The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) is an international initiative to build the next generation ground-based observatory for gamma-ray astronomy at very-high energies, ranging from a few tens of GeV to more than a hundred TeV. With more than one hundred of telescopes, of three different sizes, located in the northern and southern hemispheres, CTA will detect high-energy radiation with unprecedented accuracy and a sensitivity that is approximately 10 times better than current and is expected to generate approximately 100 petabytes (PB) of data by 2030, thus CTA is a Big Data project. Data processing is therefore as important as telescope hardware to the scientific performance of CTA. This report describes the preliminary architectural design concept for the CTA data processing software system that will be responsible to manage all the functionality of the CTA array, thereby enabling CTA to reach its scientific goals.
