Archivematica is a free and open-source digital preservation system that is designed to maintain standards-based, long-term access to collections of digital objects.

Archivematica uses a micro-services design pattern to provide an integrated suite of software tools that allows users to process digital objects from ingest to access in compliance with the ISO-OAIS functional model. Users monitor and control the micro-services via a web-based dashboard. Archivematica uses METS, PREMIS, Dublin Core and other best practice metadata standards. Archivematica implements format policies based on an analysis of the significant characteristics of file formats.

The overview section provides a detailed description of Archivematica's functionality and technical architecture. This Archivematica 1.0 screencast gives a demo of the core features in the first production release of the system.
