We’re excited to announce that Globus now supports recurring and scheduled transfers. The new feature allows you to submit a job that will reliably request periodic transfers with a defined start time. For example, you can set up a daily, automatic sync to your back-up system or delay the start of a big transfer until midnight on Saturday or move data to archival storage once a week. Status of such scheduled jobs can be monitored and managed as well, and, unlike a cron job, your recurring transfers don’t depend on the availability of your system.
