Starfish is a unique software application for managing files and objects at any scale, ranging from departmental file shares to the world’s largest supercomputing file systems. With Starfish, previously opaque file system metadata is made accessible and actionable. Quickly locate files and groups of files. Get immediate information on file counts, sizes, duplication, ages, disk utilization (du), and change rates on billions of files and petabytes of data. Make data-informed decisions and automate actions (move, migrate, backup/restore, archive/restore) from the results of those queries at a very large scale.
