MBARI has completed several operational releases of its new data management system, the Shore Side Data System (SSDS). SSDS is a distributed system which has been tested with data from multiple observing platforms, hundreds of instruments, and numerous software-based data sources. The SSDS architecture combines modern data standards and interfaces, an advanced yet open metadata schema, and open-source software libraries to provide flexible, expandable data management for ocean observatories. In this paper we discuss two of the key technical approaches followed for the SSDS, and analyze the operational results. The appropriateness of the selected approaches for use in observatories, institutions, and regional associations is also presented.
