The ASTRI project is the INAF (Italian National Institute for Astrophysics) flagship project developed in the context of the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) international project. ASTRI is dedicated to the realization of the prototype of a Cherenkov small-size dual-mirror telescope (SST-2M) and then to the realization of a mini-array composed of a few of these units. The prototype and all the necessary hardware devices are foreseen to be installed at the Serra La Nave Observing Station (Catania, Italy) in 2014. The upcoming data flow will be properly reduced by dedicated (online and offline) analysis pipelines aimed at providing robust and reliable scientific results (signal detection, sky maps, spectra and light curves) from the ASTRI silicon photo-multipliers camera raw data. Furthermore, a flexible archiving system has being conceived for the storage of all the acquired ASTRI (scientific, calibration, housekeeping) data at different steps of the data reduction up to the final scientific products. In this contribution we present the data acquisition, the analysis pipeline and the archive architecture that will be in use for the ASTRI SST prototype. In addition, the generalization of the data management system to the case of a mini-array of ASTRI telescopes will be discussed.
