Kaiserslautern, Germany, November 9, 2022 — ThinkParQ the company behind the parallel file system BeeGFS, announced today the launch of its new hierarchical index tool, BeeGFS Hive Index.

BeeGFS Hive Index is a hierarchical index that stores file system metadata to enable users to run queries and searches on a file system with millions to billions of files and receive results in seconds without affecting the performance and efficiency of the file system itself. It does so by initially scanning the file system and then incrementally updating the index by reacting to file system modification events it receives from the BeeGFS metadata modification event logger.

 “BeeGFS Hive Index enables BeeGFS users to take effective decisions regarding data management including data archival, movement, and removal, further optimizing their workflows,” said Frank Herold, CEO of ThinkParQ.  “Our BeeGFS Hive Index tool is based on the open-source software Grand Unified File Index, that our development team adapted to BeeGFS-specific functionality to maximize value and efficiency”.

BeeGFS Hive Index GA will be by the end of 2022 and is the first of many tools that ThinkParQ launched as part of BeeGFS Hive, its growing suite of tools designed to further enhance the BeeGFS user experience and increase productivity.

ThinkParQ will showcase and demo BeeGFS Hive Index on its booth #1242 at SC22.
