Chicago, Illinois - April 16, 2014 - The explosion of data across disciplines has opened up vast new possibilities for scientific discovery. But many researchers do not yet have access to the advanced infrastructure needed to work with Big Data and realize its full potential.

By now, almost every system administrator on the planet is aware of the OpenSSL vulnerability (also known as the Heartbleed bug). Since its announcement we've been hard at work reviewing all Globus services and software components to figure out which of them, if any, are vulnerable.

The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, has implemented a new feature of the Globus software that will allow researchers using the Center’s computational and storage resources to easily and securely access and share large data sets with colleagues. SDSC is the first supercomputer center in the National Science Foundation’s XSEDE (eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment) program to offer the new and unique Globus sharing service.

In the stock markets, the so-called "January Effect" is the increase in stock prices during the month of January that commentators attribute to investors buying stocks after having sold them during the previous December (usually for tax reasons). Unlike most January's, last month the markets experienced a steep drop—the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 5.3% from its 2013 year-end level. But I'm happy to say that the January Effect is alive and well at Globus!

Moving, sharing, and copying files from one platform to another can be challenging when working with large data. This hands-on workshop will introduce researchers to how to move data on the University of Chicago Research Computing Center system using Globus, and provide examples of how to integrate it into your research work-flow.

The workshop will be at the Kathleen A. Zar Room in the John Crerar Library in Hyde Park.
