This week in a trip to Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, the U.S. Secretary of Energy used Globus to move 500GB of data between ALCF and NERSC.

In the HPC world, under-the-covers tools for things like file transfer aren't usually the story. It's what happens before and after data is moved that tends to get the headlines. The data movement itself? Not so much.

This week we are happy to celebrate the second birthday of Globus Auth, our authentication and authorization platform.

Globus Auth now supports nearly 91,000 users from our 478 identity providers. With over 37,000 new users since last year, the number of users has grown at twice the rate it did last year. If you also include linked identities, the number rises to over 116,000 identities.

The venerable storage format, tape, is the topic of the fifth article in our Storage Innovation blog series. If you’re shocked by the mention of tape in a series about storage innovation, you may be pleasantly surprised by how far tape has evolved. In this post, I’ll cover the essentials that research organizations need to know about tape storage, and highlight some recent advances that make tape more attractive than ever.

Globus, Science DMZ provide new architecture to meet demand for accessing shared data

A team of networking experts from the Department of Energy’s Energy Sciences Network (ESnet), with the Globus team from the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory, has designed a new approach that makes data sharing faster, more reliable and more secure. In an article published Jan. 15 in Peer J Comp Sci, the team describes their “The Modern Research Data Portal: a design pattern for networked, data-intensive science.”
