The contribution describes a solution for large audio archives that has been developed using a Service-oriented architecture (SOA). The audio archiving system is designed as a framework of web services that are controlled centrally by a workflow engine. The audio archiving system offers hierarchical storage, import, export and conversion of audio files in various formats. Search and retrieval bases on textual metadata that are entered into an entity-relationship model (ERM). The archive offers a web based interface that can be used with a standard web browser. Current installations are coping with several hundreds of users, more than 700.000 metadata entries and 16 TB of audio files.
