The DUNE experiment will aim to study fundamental parameters of neutrino oscillations with high precision. It will employ a uniquely large (40kt) Liquid Argon Time Projection chamber as the main component of its Far Detector. In order to validate major design elements and characterize the detector performance for various event types, an ambitious experimental program has been created which foresees construction of a large-scale DUNE prototype at CERN. The prototype will be used for testing with purpose-built beam line from the CERN SPS providing a few types of particles. The amount of data to be collected in this experiment is quite substantial and will require careful design of the DAQ and data handling systems, as well as mechanisms to distribute data to a number of the DUNE distributed computing sites. We present our approach to solving these problems by leveraging the experience of the LHC experiments.
