Six years in the making, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Knowledgebase (KBase) program offers the most updated system for recording experimental methods, collaborating with colleagues and performing every step of biological analysis through one free, open source.

In 2021, the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) is planning to deploy Aurora A21, a new Intel-Cray system, slated to be the first exascale supercomputer in the United States. Aurora will be equipped with advanced capabilities for modeling and simulation, data science, and machine learning, which will allow scientists to tackle much larger and more complex problems than are possible today.

The amount of data processed at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will grow significantly when CERN transitions to the High-Luminosity LHC, a facility upgrade being carried out now for operations planned in 2026. To help meet the LHC’s growing computing needs, scientists from the ATLAS experiment are working in conjunction with the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) to optimizing ATLAS simulations on the ALCF’s Intel-Cray supercomputer, Theta, to improve the processing efficiency on supercomputing resources.

For the first time, scientists have been able to trace the origins of a ghostly subatomic particle that traveled 3.7 billion light-years to Earth. The tiny, high-energy cosmic particle is called a neutrino, and it was found by sensors deep in the Antarctic ice in the IceCube detector, which uses Globus for data archiving.

Globus uses the Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption protocol to secure network communications. In keeping with recommended security practices, Globus is deprecating TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 and requiring a minimum of TSL 1.2. This security upgrade will roll out across all Globus services and downloads during the week of August 27, 2018.

We expect this change to impact only a very small number of users. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact support@globus.org.

UChicago-Argonne project blends science, computation to study inner workings of mind

If you want to know how a machine works, it helps to look inside. Crack open the case and look at how it’s wired together; you might need an engineering degree, a microscope and a lot of time, but eventually you can puzzle out what makes any given device tick.

But can that same approach work for the most amazing machine we know—one capable of making complex calculations in a fraction of a second, while using less energy than a common light bulb?

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is announcing a $1.8 million grant for the initial development of the Open Storage Network (OSN), a distributed system for science that uses Globus for data management: Over the next two years, a collaborative team will combine their expertise, facilities and research challenges to develop OSN which will enable academic researchers across the nation to work with and share their data more efficiently than ever before. Get the full story here.

My last post introduced the Jupyter “live notebook” environment and explained why our Globus team is working to make it easier to use Globus services in the Jupyter environment. Now, it’s time to share some of the cool things you can do with Globus and Jupyter.

In this post, I’ll cover how to access Globus services in Jupyter notebooks, how to set up a multi-user JupyterHub to use Globus for user logins, and how to access Globus access tokens in a notebook after logging in with Globus.
