Abstract: ALMA will produce enormous data rates and volumes. In full operation it will generate up to 60 MB/s of scientific data and in addition auxiliary and logging data with frequencies down to 48 ms. These data have to be made persistent as early as possible after their production. Consequently the archive is placed at the very center of the ALMA data flow system and all other subsystems utilize the services provided. In addition to these services the archive subsystem has to implement the standard archive functionalities for PIs and archive researchers and it is probably the first archive to have VO compliance written in the science requirements. This paper gives an overview of the design and implementation and the current status of the ALMA archive subsystem.
