Archipelago Software Services


At the core of the Archipelago philosophy is our commitment to both simplicity and flexibility.

Under the hood, Archipelago's architecture is:

Installation is entirely Dockerized and scripted with easy-to-follow directions.

  • Docker containers are as follows:

esmero-php PHP-FPM Has all binaries for postprocessing/exif/ocr/etc. Runs PHP code.
esmero-db Database AMD and INTEL processors: MYSQL 8
ARM processors: MariaDB
esmero-minio Storage S3 API compatible Backend file and ADO as file storage. In a local it will do all the S3 stuff, on a live instance it can server as file routing to AWS S3, Azure Blob Storage, etc.
esmero-solr Solr Currently version 8.8.2
esmero-nlp Natural Language Processing NLP64 server for entity extraction, language detection, etc.
