Large data transfers with Globus

The CISL Consulting Services Group presented this class in August 2016 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.

Participants learned how to move files to and from the GLADE file systems. These topics were covered:

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