October 14, 2019 (All day) to October 15, 2019 (All day)

University of Kentucky

Globus will present a talk and a workshop at the 2019 Commonwealth Computational Summit hosted by the University of Kentucky:

Co-founder Ian Foster will present as the event's government keynote speaker:

  • Title: TBD (keep track of agenda details here)
  • Date/Time: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 @ 2:30-3:30 p.m.

In addition, Globus's Lee Liming will hold a workshop on Monday, October 14, during the event's Industry Workshop Day:

  • Title: Globus - Beyond File Transfer
  • Date/Time: Monday, October 14, 2019 - time TBD (the workshop will be approx. 3 hours long)
  • Abstract: Organizations need fast, secure, and reliable data management solutions as they architect infrastructures to address the oncoming demands of HPC's convergence with AI and data analytics -- and researchers also need them as they collaborate on data-intensive projects every single day. Globus has spent the past nine years developing a research data management service now used by over 100,000 users at thousands of organizations worldwide. In this session, we will demonstrate Globus capabilities from two perspectives: end-user/researcher and system administrator. We will begin by introducing the many features of the Globus web application and command line interface, as well as the capabilities that let users go beyond simple file transfer. You will learn how to share data with collaborators and set up personal endpoints. Next, we'll show how Globus supports management of Protected Health Information (PHI) including data regulated by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Personally Identifiable Information (PII), and Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). With higher assurance levels for managing restricted data, researchers can easily work with this data and share it securely and appropriately with collaborators, while meeting compliance requirements. Finally, we will provide a detailed walk-through of installing and configuring a Globus endpoint, including deployment configurations such as multi-server data transfer nodes, using the management console with pause/resume rules, and integrating identity systems for streamlined user authentication. We will also discuss Globus connectors for storage systems such as Amazon S3, Ceph, HPSS, Google Drive, and Box.
