With many large science equipment constructing and putting into use, astronomy has stepped into the big data era. The new method and infrastructure of big data processing has become a new requirement of many astronomers. Cloud computing, Map/Reduce, Hadoop, Spark, etc. many new technology has sprung up in recent years. Comparing to the high performance computing(HPC), Data is the center of these new technology. So, a new computing architecture infrastructure is necessary, which can be shared by both HPC and big data processing. Based on Astronomy Cloud project of Chinese Virtual Observatory (China-VO), we have made much efforts to optimize the designation of the hybrid computing platform. which include the hardware architecture, cluster management, Job and Resource scheduling.
