An ever increasing number of large tomographic images is recorded at synchrotron facilities world wide. Due to the drastic increase of data volumes, there is a recent trend to provide data analysis services at the facilities as well. The ASTOR project aims to realize a cloud-based infrastructure for remote data analysis and visualization of tomographic data. A key component is a web-based data browser to select data sets and request a virtual machine for analysis of this data. One of the challenges is to provide a fast preview of 3D volumes but also 3D sequences. Since a standard data sets exceed 10 gigabytes, standard visualization techniques are not feasible and new data reduction techniques have to be developed.
