By now many of us are working from home, out of labs and offices, and off campus. For several this necessity was a bit of a surprise, finding out over the weekend that you were now in remote work mode.

Reflections from Globus Co-Founder Ian Foster

2020 marks the 10-year anniversary of the Globus service as we know it today. It also promises to be a monumental year for the product and team, for many reasons, not least because we’ll likely reach one exabyte (10^18 bytes) transferred as Globus usage continues to grow. I want to take a moment to reflect on how far we’ve come, and where we plan to go in 2020 and beyond.

Missing Steve

Research Reality: Research projects can include multiple collaborators, generate large amounts of data, include hundreds or thousands of participants/samples, and require significant computing resources for data storage, transfer, and analysis. The data needs to be shared, combined, and manipulated by researchers who may sit on the other side of a wall, across campus, or across the ocean from each other.

Two essential elements of the cyberinfrastructure required to advance modern science are networking and high performance computing resources. That’s what SCinet set out to demonstrate at SC19 in Denver, with their first-ever SCinet Technology Challenge

And we’re proud that Globus played a role in the winning project!

We’d like to share this walkthrough recently written up in GitHub for how to use the Globus CLI to list, filter, and batch submit a transfer from two locations into a single destination folder.

It is with tremendous sadness that we share the news of the death of our dear friend and colleague Steve Tuecke on November 2, 2019.

Our thoughts are especially with his family at this moment. We too, are heartbroken.

DataCite started work on improving DataCite authentication two months ago, beginning with a major upgrade of the Profiles service. One visible change for users is the new sign in via Globus.

After careful consideration, we have decided to discontinue the data publication functions of the Globus service. This action only affects data publication functions—it does not affect core Globus services, such as file transfer, data sharing, and the management console, in any way.

We first announced this decision in February 2019 to customers affected by the decision, and we have worked with them to transition their data and metadata to other systems, prior to our discontinuing the service on September 30, 2019.

Globus recently saw the biggest single file transfer in our history: a team led by Argonne National Laboratory scientists moved 2.9 petabytes of data on the Summit system at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, as part of a research project involving three of the largest cosmological simulations known to date.

We sat down with Dr. Katrin Heitmann, Argonne physicist and computational scientist and the lead researcher on this project, to get details on the project and why she uses Globus.
