Argonne researchers and staff now have access to the Globus data management service. A number of storage systems at the lab are already enabled for Globus use, including Mira, Vesta and the tape archive at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (LCF); various systems at the Laboratory Computing Resource Center (LCRC) and Center for Nanoscience Materials (CNM); and several beamlines at the Advanced Photon Source (APS). Argonne researchers have used Globus for many years to replace cumbersome and error-prone file transfer mechanisms such as sftp and rsync.
