Large data transfers with Globus

08/30/2016 - 2:00pm

The CISL Consulting Services Group will present a 90-minute class at 2 p.m. MDT on Tuesday, August 30, to familiarize participants with the Globus system for transferring data between file systems.

Much of the work that scientists do involves large quantities of data that must be transferred for purposes of sharing and collaboration. Globus is a tool designed to facilitate fast, reliable, secure file transfers between supercomputing centers as well as local file systems.

In this class, we will explore using Globus to move files to and from the GLADE file systems. Specifically, we will cover:

  • When to use Globus
  • How to set up a Globus ID and access GLADE
  • Globus web interface vs. command-line interface
  • Creating a Globus endpoint
  • The NCAR Data Sharing Service

There will be time for interested attendees to apply the above information to their workflow.
