2015 Zenodo  
ne of the important activities of ESA Science Operations Centre is to provide Data Analysis Software (DAS) to enable users and scientists to process data further to higher levels. During operations and post-operations, Data Analysis Software (DAS) is fully maintained and updated for new OS and library releases. Nonetheless, once a Mission goes into the "legacy" phase, there are very limited funds and long-term preservation becomes more and more difficult. Building on Virtual Machine (VM), Cloud

Machine (VM), Cloud computing and Software as a Service (SaaS) technologies, this project has aimed at providing long-term preservation of Data Analysis Software for the following missions: PIA for ISO (1995) SAS for XMM-Newton (1999) Hipe for Herschel (2009) EXIA for EXOSAT (1983) Following goals have guided the architecture: Support for all operations, post-operations and archive/legacy phases. SSupport for local (user's computer) and cloud environments (ESAC-Cloud, Amazon - AWS). SSupport for expert users, requiring full capabilities. SProvision of a simple web-based interface. This talk describes the architecture, challenges, results and lessons learnt gathered in this project.
