We will be leading a tutorial on Monday, July 14, and hosting a Globus Breakfast for Campus Champions on Thursday, July 17. We will also be at exhibit table #6 throughout the conference where our team can answer all your questions about research data management with Globus.
The annual XSEDE conference brings together the extended community of individuals interested in advancing research cyberinfrastructure and integrated digital services for the benefit of science and society.
Monday July 14, 2014, 8 a.m.-12 p.m.
Existing campus data services are limited in their reach and utility due, in part, to unreliable tools and a wide variety of storage systems with sub-optimal user interfaces. Further, the underlying networking and security infrastructure on most campuses is complex and inflexible, resulting in many challenges to effective campus bridging. In this session, participants will learn how to deliver robust services for managing research data that span campus systems, national cyberinfrastructure, and public cloud resources.
An increasingly common solution to campus bridging comprises Globus operating within the Science DMZ, enabling reliable, secure file transfer and sharing, while optimizing use of existing high-speed network connections and campus identity infrastructures. The combined solution allows research computing resource owners and systems administrators to deliver enhanced campus data services to end users at optimal quality of service, while ensuring predictable network performance and integrity. Globus is installed at most XSEDE resource providers and we will draw on experiences from research computing centers (Cornell University) and HPC facilities (SDSC) to highlight the challenges such facilities face in delivering scalable campus data services. Attendees will be introduced to Globus and to the components of the Science DMZ, and have the opportunity for hands-on interaction with these systems.
Globus Breakfast for Campus Champions
Thursday, July 17, 2014, 7 a.m.
Please join us for an informal gathering of learning and discussion (and yes, breakfast). We’ll explain new features and upcoming releases of our research data management service, and give you the opportunity to share your Globus experiences with your peers.
Not using Globus yet? This is a great time to learn more about how others have implemented the service, and get answers to all your questions.
We hope you’ll join us for this open forum--to learn what we’ve been up to, explore new use cases, and tell us how we can make Globus better.
Register here to attend the Globus breakfast at XSEDE14. We're looking forward to seeing you!
