Abstract For both academic and industrial researchers, it has been difficult to offer an effective, large-scale distributed storage system for growing cloud applications. To improve performance, scalability, and availability in a system with such a vast amount of storage, data is dispersed among several storage nodes. The metadata for this distributed material, which is maintained by numerous metadata servers, is how it is accessed. Information regarding the location of the data, access rights, and many other details are contained in the metadata. A storage system's ability to manage metadata efficiently is crucial to its effectiveness. An examination of distributed systems' metadata management strategies is presented in this study's investigation of the literature. This article offers an analysis of metadata management strategies created by various business and research organisations. Researchers can choose the best suitable technique for a certain application by using the strengths and shortcomings of the various available techniques that are presented. Finally, it highlights current issues and key research prospects in metadata management for researchers.
