Abstract: The current development of globally accessible astrophysical data systems is increasingly embracing Grid computing concepts, with data description and formatting standards such as VOTable and Uniform Content Descriptors providing a basis for system-system interoperability. To date, a diverse set of database management systems have been used for catalogue storage within these systems. We present a Virtual Observatory service for the HI Parkes All Sky Survey, implemented on an IBM Lotus Domino R6 database management system. Domino's distributed computing architecture, with in-built support for replication and clustering, sets it apart from more general database systems as being inherently suitable for Grid computing applications.
