Globus connectors enable a uniform interface for accessing, moving, and sharing across a diverse set of storage systems.

Globus Connect Server turns your storage system into a Globus endpoint, and enables all users with local accounts on that system to access their data via Globus. Globus Connect Server supports all POSIX-compliant file systems, but the storage landscape increasingly includes cloud object stores, tape archives, and many other proprietary storage systems. Globus allows these diverse systems to be accessed in the same way, simply by installing the required connector.
