Using Globus at NCAR

Transferring data quickly and reliably is essential to efficient workflows, storing files, and sharing them with colleagues. That’s why CISL recommends using Globus for most of these tasks. It facilitates fast, robust, simple data movement across storage systems.

To help the user community take advantage of the service, Brian Vanderwende of the CISL Consulting Services Group presented this one-hour tutorial on February 20, 2020, at the NCAR Mesa Lab in Boulder.

The tutorial covers the following topics:

  • Using the NCAR endpoints to move data between NCAR systems, external HPC platforms, and personal workstations
  • Introduction to the Globus web and command-line interfaces
  • Integrating Globus into users’ workflows using long-lived certificates and our gci utility
  • Sharing data with external collaborators via the NCAR Data Sharing Service
