Abstract: The ESO Virtual Observatory Systems (VOS) department is working on a complete re-implementation of the ESO Science Archive Facility (SAF). This includes the front-end interfaces as well as the back-end databases and services. It also includes the creation and ingestion of advanced data products. The current ESO archive has been implemented about 10 years ago when the web was still fairly new. User requirements, technology changes and the requirement to publish ESO data through VO services lead to the decision to do a complete overhaul of the infrastructure. This paper presents an overview of the back-end and front-end structures and the currently available data.
