Abstract: The AKARI Infrared All-Sky Catalogs are important infrared astronomical databases for next generation astronomy. We have developed a Web-based service, AKARI Catalog Archive Server (‘AKARI-CAS’), for various types of astronomical research. The service provides useful and attractive search tools, visualization tools and documentation for the AKARI Catalogs. The most remarkable feature of our service is fast dynamic cross-identifications between registered catalogs. In this paper, we present a summary of our service and implementation design of dynamic cross-identifications for the AKARI and 2MASS catalogs. Our performance tests of the cross-identifications included cases that employed the latest low-cost SATA3 (6Gbps) SSDs.
