The Internet2 Global Summit showcases how the research and education community is transforming the way research and scholarship are conceived and conducted. This year's meeting will focus on the advancement of research capabilities through collaborative innovations in IT infrastructure and applications. Globus services are broadly used across dozens of Internet2 member institutions and we continue to work closely with Internet2 (and other networking groups such as ESnet) to optimize Globus on emerging high-speed network infrastructure.

Globus is sponsoring the Research Data Access and Preservation Summit. This conference targets the interests and needs of data managers and curators, librarians who work with research data, and researchers and data scientists. A wide range of disciplines from the life sciences, physical sciences, social sciences, and humanities will be represented. The summit brings together practitioners and researchers from academic institutions, data centers, funding agencies, and industry.

About this Workshop

Vas Vasiliadis, Director, Products, Computation Institute and Chief Customer Officer, Globus
March 18, 2015 - 12:00 CDT

Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, Pittsburgh, PA

The Operating Innovative Networks (OIN) workshop series is designed to equip university and laboratory network engineers with the knowledge and training needed to build next-gen campus networks that are optimized for data-intensive science. We collaborate closely with ESnet and other workshop organizers to educate research computing resource providers on running and optimizing Globus in the Science DMZ.

Vas Vasiliadis will present a tutorial that includes the following topics:

We recently released a management console for Globus, reflecting our commitment to help resource providers deliver an outstanding research data management service to users at their institution. The console can be used to monitor activity on endpoints, and to identify and troubleshoot faults that may indicate underlying infrastructure issues. We will continue to enhance the management console, adding the ability to suspend, resume, and cancel transfer requests, and get usage metrics.

Our annual user event promises to be bigger and more engaging than ever. GlobusWorld 2015 moves to a two-day format with multiple lightning talk sessions rather than the more formal presentation format of past conferences. As always there are lots of opportunities to learn, meet, and exchange ideas with fellow Globus users from around the world.

On Saturday, March 21, 2015, starting at 10:00am CDT, the Globus service will undergo a significant upgrade. We will be making changes to the underlying services used for managing user identities and groups. While we are deploying these changes into our production environment, the Globus service will not be available. We expect that the upgrade will be completed within 4 hours, and the service should be fully operational by approximately 2pm CDT.

The Advancing Research Computing on Campuses (ARCC) Best Practices Workshop brings together professionals involved in operating and supporting campus shared research computing infrastructure to share experiences and expertise. We are excited to sponsor the workshop and have the opportunity to engage with many existing and prospective Globus users.
