Globus will present on “Automating Research Data Management with Globus” as part of this brown bag event series hosted by ESnet. 

First-time users of the Globus service will typically access the service via its interactive, web browser interface. While this can address simple file transfer and sharing scenarios, there are many researchers who require some level of automation in order to cope with large volumes of repetitive tasks. Common use cases such as replicating data across systems at multiple institutions, staging data captured from an instrument for analysis, and enabling access to reference data for a large user community, cannot be handled at scale by ad hoc methods.

In this talk, we will describe and demonstrate how researchers, campus computing administrators, and application developers, can access Globus data management capabilities in an automated fashion, using existing organizational credentials.
