Globus is sponsoring this year's RMACC symposium. Stop by the Globus exhibit and say hello. Be sure to join the Globus presentation on data automation.

Automating Instrument Science at Scale with Globus

Date: August 2, 2022, 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Location: Room 205

Globus is widely used among the RMACC community for reliable data transfer, but a growing number of computationally intensive research activities require commensurate large-scale data management. For example, high resolution imaging instruments such as cryogenic electron microscopes require automation of data flows to increase throughput and researcher productivity, as well as to ensure the instrument remains highly utilized. Globus provides a number of capabilities to aid in automation, in particular the Globus Flows service, which is increasingly used to easily build and execute automated data flows in this context.

We will describe how Globus services facilitate automated flows, using our work with research universities and national facilities to illustrate implementation of common use cases. Attendees will have the opportunity to experiment with the service to automate data transfers, sharing permissions management and other actions. We will also illustrate how these flows can feed into downstream data portals, science gateways, and data commons, enabling search and discovery of data by the broader community.
