Abstract The experimental capabilities at the MAX IV synchrotron consists of 17 beamlines at full capacity. Each beamline puts different requirements on the control system in terms of data acquisition, high performance, data volume, pre-processing needs, and fast experiment feedback and online visualization. Therefore, high demands are put on the data management systems, and the reliability and performance of these systems has a big impact on the overall success of the facility. At MAX IV we have started the DataStaMP (Data Storage and Management Project) with the aim of providing a unified and reliable solution for all data sources in our facility. This work presents the control system aspects of the project. It is initially aimed at providing data management solution for a selected number of detectors and beamlines. It is developed in a modular and scalable architecture and combines several programming languages and frameworks. All the software runs in a dedicated cluster and communicates with the experimental stations through high performance networks, using gRPC to talk to the control system and ZMQ for retrieving the data stream.
