In April 2016 we'll be releasing enhancements to the underlying security mechanism in Globus Toolkit components used by the Globus service. This is just an informational message since most Globus users will not be affected by these changes. In particular, users operating a Globus Connect Server endpoint that uses the Globus-provided security credential are not affected and no action is required.

We’re excited to announce that data publication is now available to all Globus subscribers! We first described our vision for making research data easily discoverable and accessible to all at GlobusWorld 2014. Since then, we’re worked with a handful of early adopter institutions to refine and test the system, building a simple framework along the way to guide our development efforts.

At the SpectraSummit event in Boulder, Colorado, earlier this month, HPCwire learned of a developing partnership between storage vendor Spectra Logic and research software-as-a-service provider Globus to integrate Spectra's BlackPearl Gateway storage into the Globus Cloud, creating an endpoint for BlackPearl that effectively enables an archive tape system to be usable by the Globus community.

The XSEDE science gateways team is hosting a webinar by Stu Martin and Eric Blau on integrating Globus file transfer capabilities into the GridChem (aka SEAGrid) science gateway.

This presentation and demo will detail the design and implementation changes made to the GridChem gateway to integrate Globus transfer and sharing on SDSC's Comet compute resource. This new capability, available to all gateways, enables a gateway's users to transfer files between the gateway's community account on participating XSEDE compute resources and other Globus endpoints, like a user's laptop.

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 will present a tutorial that includes the following topics:

Globus Provider plan subscribers now have direct access to usage reports for their managed endpoints via the Globus web interface (previously, subscribers had to request usage data from the Globus support team). If you're a subscription manager for your institution, you can navigate to the globususage#reports endpoint and download the usage reports*. You will see a directory named for your institution's domain, e.g.uchicago.edu.
