Sounds pretty much like a database and a filestore. Database to store
all the metadata, with pointers to some machine-readable filenames for
the filestore. I seem to remember that one of my previous employers
hired some code-for-hire guys from UK setting that up (and alas bringing
Oracle salespeople inside the premises. I swear, those guys are harder
to remove than cockroaches...), but I'm sure some of the more
SQL-friendly guys than me could codify something for Postgres and give
it a nice frontend. ;)
