In order to leverage the ever-increasing vast amounts of data, breaking down research silos and integrating research services becomes essential. Key to accomplishing this goal is to simplify data access by using existing identities. Globus Auth - a platform service offered by Globus - enables resources like NCAR, XSEDE, and Petrel to do just that. In the five years since its launch Globus Auth has grown to over 231,000 unique users, issued over one billion access tokens, and now issues over one million new tokens daily.
What data does Globus store and how is it protected?
We’ll introduce this session with a brief overview of the security and compliance aspects of Globus operations. Come learn what kinds of data Globus stores, how we protect that data, what privacy standards we follow, and what this all means for your own security and compliance programs. While this session will highlight Globus operational security, bring all your questions about any aspect of Globus to this office hours session
So you are a Globus Connect Server Version 5 endpoint administrator. You have set up your endpoint so those with local accounts can access their directory structures via mapped collections. Now you want to enable Globus guest collections so your users can leverage the full power of Globus in collaborative research. This session will show you how to do just that, as well as touch on some of the configuration options you can implement to ensure compliance with your security policies.
We’re excited to announce that Globus now supports recurring and scheduled transfers. The new feature allows you to submit a job that will reliably request periodic transfers with a defined start time. For example, you can set up a daily, automatic sync to your back-up system or delay the start of a big transfer until midnight on Saturday or move data to archival storage once a week. Status of such scheduled jobs can be monitored and managed as well, and, unlike a cron job, your recurring transfers don’t depend on the availability of your system.
