  The SOLEIL synchrotron light source is based on a 2.75 GeV electron storage ring that was commissioned in 2006 at Saint Aubin, France. The first 10 beamlines are currently commissioned, and regular user operation is planned for summer 2007. SOLEIL is also the first 100% TANGO-controlled facility. Originally developed at the ESRF, the object-oriented TANGO Control Framework is now the core component of a close collaboration between four synchrotron facilities: ESRF, SOLEIL, ELETTRA, and ALBA. The SOLEIL control system is an example of the TANGO capability of federating heterogeneous off-the-shelf technologies into a coherent whole on the basis of a single concept: the device. The aim of the presentation is to provide an overview of the “Service-Oriented Architecture,” which is now routinely used for the control of both the SOLEIL accelerators and beamlines. The ubiquity of the TANGO services will be illustrated on both server and client sides of the control system architecture. The main software subsystems will be presented. We will conclude with a feedback report by presenting some figures and statistics about the control system's stability after its first year of operation.

  Tango is a control system based on the device server concept. It is currently being actively developed by 4 (soon 5) institutes, 3 of which are new institutes. In October 2006 the Tango community met in the French Alps to discuss the future evolution of Tango. This paper summarizes the fruits of this meeting. It presents the different areas Tango will concentrate on for the next 5 years. Some of the main topics concern services, beamline control, embedded systems on FPGA, 64-bit support, scalability for large systems, faster boot performance, enhanced Python and Java support for servers, more model-driven development, and integrated workbench-like applications. The aim is to keep on adding batteries to Tango so that it remains a modern, powerful control system that satisfies not only the needs of light-source facilities but other communities too.
