In this paper, the authors discuss the challenges that are imposed by the Big Data Science on the modern and future Scientific Data Infrastructure (SDI). The paper refers to different scientific communities to define requirements on data management, access control and security. The paper introduces the Scientific Data Lifecycle Management (SDLM) model that includes all the major stages and reflects specifics in data management in modern e-Science. The paper proposes the SDI generic architecture model that provides a basis for building interoperable data or project centric SDI using modern technologies and best practices. The paper explains how the proposed models SDLM and SDI can be naturally implemented using modern cloud based infrastructure services provisioning model.
