Globus is again sponsoring at exhibiting at Bio-IT World this year. Come see us in booth 433 for updates on key features for life sciences (including HiPAA support) as well as the latest on our work with Globus Genomics. And don't miss the "Archiving and Managing Large Data Volumes​" session on Wednesday, chaired by Globus Head of Products Rachana Ananthakrishnan, who will give a talk on "Secure, Scalable Research Data Management Infrastructure for Life Sciences" in the same session.

For more than 50 years, HPC has supported tremendous advances in all areas of science. But densely-populated communities can more easily support subscription-based commodity networks and energy infrastructure that make it more affordable for urban universities to engage globally. Research centers based in sparsely-populated regions are extremely disadvantaged. HPCwire describes how researchers in far-flung places are dealing with these challenges, and how Globus facilitates fast, reliable file transfer, irrespective of distance and network conditions.

This is the 4th article in our Storage Innovation blog series. We’ve been discussing on-premise storage in the past two posts, and in the last post I talked about the pros and cons of “rolling your own” storage. In this post, we’ll have a discussion with Linda Zhou, Director of HPC and Life Sciences Solutions at HGST, about turnkey private cloud storage systems and the benefits of approaching storage this way.

A Conversation with HGST HPC Director Linda Zhou

[Steve Tuecke] To begin with, Linda, give us a quick summary of what we need to know about HGST.

ESnet’s Petascale DTN Project Speeds up Data Transfers between Leading HPC Centers

The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science operates three of the world’s leading supercomputing centers, where massive data sets are routinely imported, analyzed, used to create simulations and exported to other sites. Fortunately, DOE also runs a networking facility, ESnet (short for Energy Sciences Network), the world’s fastest network for science, which is managed by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

As we recently announced, we are working towards making Globus suitable for use with protected data and in HIPAA regulated environments. In preparation for this—and to support new features in Globus Connect Server version 5—the Globus service will undergo an upgrade on Saturday, December 9th, and will be unavailable from 10:00AM to 2:00PM CST.

In November's data center storage round-up from Chris Mellor at The Register, the Globus and Western Digital (WDC) partnership was highlighted:

WDC is partnering with Globus to integrate Globus's research data management software with WDC's ActiveScale object-based storage (OBS) system. Globus has produced an ActiveScale connector and aims to store Big Data analytics data on the WDC disk archive box.
