Starfish – Data Management

To scan and manage data on different filesystems, FASRC is using Starfish.

You need to be connected to the FASRC VPN to access Starfish. See VPN Setup for how to connect.

Starfish is a self-service tool. It is the user’s responsibility to obtain Lab’s data usage. A PI may also assign one or more lab members to access Starfish. Please tell us if you would like to name additional lab members to use Starfish.

Starfish Service URL Storage Servers holylfs04 (Tier0), holylfs05 (Tier0), holystore01, holylfs02, holy-isilon(Tier1), bos-isilon(Tier1), boslfs02 (Tier 0), holylabs

Note: If your lab has not requested access to starfish already, please reach out to us:
