Globus Connect Server is the software installed by institutions to connect storage and data to the Globus ecosystem, so users can leverage the rich data management platform Globus offers. To expand the capabilities offered by Globus, work is underway on the next generation Globus Connect Server to provide enhanced endpoint management, more versatile data access interfaces, and improved deployment models. These new capabilities will be built out as a series of releases of version 5 of the software, with incremental functionality made available with each release.

Most of us are now comfortable with cloud computing, enough to often take it for granted. Whether it’s saving our photos in cloud storage, accessing our email from multiple devices, or streaming a high-definition video on the bus, moving data to and from a distant computing center has become second nature.

HPC and computing resources now reach an ever increasing and wider audience, extending out from the “usual suspects” in traditional modeling and simulation, into what is now being called the proverbial “long tail of science”. In support of this long tail, a new breed of research software engineers, research computing facilitators and scientists are needed. Even the very computer systems themselves are getting monikers related to such “long tails”. Recent NSF machines Jetstream and Comet as two very visible examples are each named as a hat tip to “long tails”.

In the sixth and final article in this series, we turn our attention from on-premise to cloud-based storage. I’ll be addressing four primary types of cloud storage: file storage, object storage, cold storage and file systems, first defining each and then providing my views on how each might be used for research.

Defining Cloud Storage Options: The Facts

Here's a quick overview of the 4 types of cloud storage...
