The Tenaran archive is the central computer database containing the knowledge the Tenaran's gained up to when they left Novus. The database can be accessed from workstations around the fallout bunker. The Evacuation ships also had a copy of the archive, and Destiny managed to copy 1/3 of the archive before the bunker lost power. This is at least 900 exabytes (900 million terabytes), which according to Volker is a "drop in the bucket" compared to the overall size of the archive. (SGU: "Epilogue")
Known information stored in the archive includes:
- Historical archives.
- Kino footage of the Destiny expedition.
- Stargate address and information of these planets.
- Cultural information on the People of Novus.
- Biological notes and research.
- Medical information.
- Personal logs.
- Schematics of the Evacuation ships.
