Abstract: The James Webb Space Telescope will have five instruments and 18 detectors. It will generate more than 25 different types of FITS files whose metadata will be stored in the archive. The archive must be designed in such a way that makes it easy to ingest the files quickly. This paper explores the evolution of the archive design, discussing the challenges that led to each change.
