Paper Abstract

We describe the implementation of an archive of scientific data, which will expand at a rate of 1 Terabyte per year, starting from the middle of 1987. The archive, now ready in a prototype fashion, is located at ESO in Garching near Munich, and will serve both the ESO (European Southern Observatory) and the ST-ECF (Space Telescope European Coordinating Facility) needs. Details on the three major system components, that is User Interface, Catalogue Handler and Archive Handler are given, with particular emphasis on the last one, which uses WORM optical disk storage, for which a specific disk format has been adopted.
