Cyberinfrastructure development over the past decade has focused on creating computational, networking, and visualization systems to support simulation and data analysis. While development efforts have proven to be successful and useful for the initial creation and use of scientific data, few cyberinfrastructure systems exist that can manage the entire data life cycle, which can span to decades in duration. New NSF requirements for data management plans in proposals are driving technology exploration and development efforts to define and develop institutional data repositories for the science and engineering research community. The NSF George E. Brown Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) project is an example of a large-scale research network that produces a tremendous variety of irreproducible data that must be curated and made accessible for many years. This talk explores the issues and problems involved in developing and operating cyberinfrastructure to support the data life cycle for scientific data, and describes the specific data life cycle management requirements and systems for the NSF NEES project.
