  In modern scientific instruments like ALBA, ELETTRA or Synchrotron Soleil the monitoring and tuning of thousands of parameters is essential to drive high-performing accelerators and beamlines. To keep tracks of these parameters and to manage easily large volumes of technical data, an archiving service is a key component of a modern control system like Tango [1]. To do so, a high-availability archiving service is provided as a feature of the Tango control system. This archiving service stores data coming from the Tango control system into MySQL [2] or Oracle [3] databases. Tree sub-services are provided: An historical service with an archiving period up to 10 seconds; a short term service providing a few weeks retention with a period up to 100 milliseconds; a snapshot service which takes "pictures" of Tango parameters and can reapply them to the control system on user demand. This paper presents how to obtain a high-performance and scalable service based on our feedback after years of operation. Then, the deployment architecture in the different Tango institutes will be detailed. The paper conclusion is a description of the next steps and incoming features which will be available in the next future.

  To reach the goals specified in the ESRF upgrade program [1], for the new experiments to be built, the storage ring needs to be modified. The optics must to be changed to allow up to seven meter long straight sections and canted undulator set-ups. Better beam stabilization and feedback systems are necessary for the nano-focus experiments planned. Also we are undergoing a renovation and modernization phase to increase the lifetime of the accelerator and its control system. This paper resumes the major upgrade projects, like the new BPM system, the fast orbit feedback or the ultra small vertical emittance, and their implications on the control system. Ongoing modernization projects such as the solid state radio frequency amplifier or the HOM damped cavities are described. Software upgrades of several sub-systems like vacuum and insertion devices, which are planned for this year or for the long shutdown period beginning of 2012 are covered as well. The final goal is to move to a Tango only control system.
