Plug Google Cloud into your research storage ecosystem with the Globus for Google Cloud connector.

Globus for Google Cloud connector

Researchers can access their files in Google Cloud object storage via the same easy-to-use Globus interface they already use to manage data on other systems. All you need is your existing institutional credentials to move and share data from Google Cloud.

Why Globus for Google Cloud? 

  • Manage your research data with ease: With Globus for Google Cloud you can easily move and share files of any size (from GB to PB) between Google Cloud and other systems – e.g. HPC centers, local clusters, or your laptop.
  • Share data instantly: Simply click and share your Google Cloud files with collaborators using their existing institutional login or email – no need for them to request a Google Cloud account.
  • Streamline administration: Simplify user access to Google Cloud while ensuring control and visibility into how your users access and store their data.
  • Get more from your Google Cloud investment: By making data management and collaboration easier for your researchers, your organization derives greater value from Google Cloud
