P8.11 News from the ESO Science Archive Facility

Adam Dobrzycki (ESO)

ESO Science Archive Facility (SAF) - one of the biggest astronomical archives on the planet - combines two roles: operational (ingest, tallying, safekeeping and distribution to observers of raw data taken with ESO telescopes and processed data generated both internally and externally) and scientific (publication and delivery of all flavours of data to external users).

This poster presents the "State of the SAF." SAF, as a living entity, is constantly implementing new services and upgrading the existing ones. We present recent and future developments related to the Archive's Request Handler and metadata handling as well as performance and usage statistics and trends. We also discuss the current and future datasets on offer at SAF.
