The Computation Institute at the University of Chicago covers GlobusWorld 2018:

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...

Workshops reach 750 engineers at 360 institutions


Although ESnet is well known for its expertise in supporting the transfer of datasets across the country and around the globe, for the past four years the facility's staff has also been transferring their networking expertise to staff at other research and education organizations.

Globus is a host of this year's LUG, April 24-26, 2018 at Argonne National Laboratory. LUG provides technical sessions on the latest Lustre developments and best practices, while providing opportunities to share information, network, and collaborate with your peers. The OpenSFS Board election results will also be announced.

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.
