Abstract: Globus Online

In this presentation, we will give attendees an up-close look at Globus Online, our free service for large data movement over GridFTP that provides a robust, reliable, secure, and highly monitored environment for file transfers. This hosted service simplifies secure data movement without requiring construction of custom end-to-end systems. We will provide a brief technology overview and show attendees how to move data using web and command line interfaces. We will also demo the Globus Connect feature for creating a local transfer endpoint (eg campus server or home computer/laptop) even if behind a firewall or NAT. We will also cover the command-line interface for scripted workflows and the REST-style transfer API for programmatic integration with systems like web portals and science gateways. We will also discuss a few case studies and results to date, as well as usage tips and tricks.
