We are pleased to participate in the South Big Data Hub working group meeting. We will present an overview of Globus, highlighting recently released features and demonstrating how the service may be used to streamline research data management.

Abstract: Globus is software-as-a-service for research data management. Our goal is to make it easy for researchers to manage their data throughout its lifecycle, using just a web browser to move, share, and publish data, directly from your own storage systems. Globus provides secure, reliable, high-performance file transfer, the ability to share files with collaborators, and flexible workflows for identifying, describing, curating, and publishing data sets. Since its launch at SC10, the service has been deployed at hundreds of research institutions across the US and abroad. In this talk, we will provide an introductory overview and demonstration of Globus, and describe recent enhancements that bring additional capabilities to both researchers and research computing administrators.
