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.
