Abstract: The Science Archive Team at ESAC (European Space Astronomy Center) is responsible for developing, maintaining and operating the Science Archives for all the Astronomy and Planetary missions. Due to the different nature of the missions, each one with its peculiarities, the data produced has a great variety of formats and is always delivered in very project-specific way. Taking this restriction into account, managing the storage and ingestion of data into the Science Archives in a homogeneous way to make a better use of resources has never been easy. The continuous evolution of technologies involved has made this an even more challenging process since the release of the first archive a decade ago.
