INDIGO-DataCloud (INtegrating Distributed data Infrastructures for Global ExplOitation), a project funded under the Horizon2020 framework program of the European Union, aims at developing a data and computing platform targeting scientific communities, deployable on multiple hardware and provisioned over hybrid (private or public) e-infrastructures. Since the multidisciplinary field of application of the project, also the astronomical community decided to embrace the ambitious effort to develop and release an infrastructure able to filling existing gaps in PaaS and SaaS levels, helping developers, resource providers, e-infrastructures and scientific astronomical community to overcome current challenges in the Cloud computing, storage and network areas. Our current role in the INDIGO-DataCloud project is to provide technical use cases, identify requirements, as well as test the proposed solutions.We present a description of the goals and the identified technological stack and solutions offered by INDIGO-DataCloud for the Large Binocular Telescope use case, current astronomical requirements and necessities for data persistence and distribution over distinct and geographically separated sites and archives, as well as suggestions on how to meet the current astronomical requirements and integrate them within INDIGO-DataCloud solutions.
