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!

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.

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.

This week in a trip to Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, the U.S. Secretary of Energy used Globus to move 500GB of data between ALCF and NERSC.

In the HPC world, under-the-covers tools for things like file transfer aren't usually the story. It's what happens before and after data is moved that tends to get the headlines. The data movement itself? Not so much.
