An endpoint is a system connected to Globus. Once an endpoint is established, it is accessible to authorized users and can serve as a transfer endpoint (the source or destination for file transfers).
With a Globus subscription you can establish different types of endpoints: Users can securely share data through shared endpoints and system administrators get additional management tools with managed endpoints. Premium connectors allow storage systems with non-POSIX filesystems (e.g. Google Drive, S3, BlackPearl) to serve as endpoints.
