Save the date for the biggest gathering of all things Globus: the annual GlobusWorld Conference, April 25–26, 2018.

GlobusWorld brings together researchers, systems administrators, developers and IT leaders from top computing centers, labs and universities around the U.S. The event is designed to provide new insights into managing research data and storage at scale, as well as building and using cutting-edge applications, portals and gateways.

This is the second in our Storage Innovations blog series, and the first post about on-premise solutions. In this article we’ve invited Matt Starr at Spectra Logic to provide insights about what to expect from turnkey solutions for on-prem storage (by “turnkey” I mean essentially plug and play devices that just work, and require very little effort to manage).

In this first in a series of posts about what’s going on in big data storage, especially as relates to research centers, universities and labs, I’ll be talking about the current state of campus research storage – the good and the bad – and point out what campuses need to be looking at as part of their data management planning.

Campus Research Storage Options

Let’s start with a summary of the options campuses have today in terms of providing storage for their researchers:

We recently announced availability of Globus for Google Drive, adding another storage system that can be used with the Globus service. Globus for Google Drive was driven by customer demand to make Google Drive more effective as a storage tier suitable for researchers on campus. Common use cases include using Google Drive as a backup destination for research data, as intermediate storage for computation results, as a highly accessible repository to support Data Management Plans, and as a conduit for securely distributing derived data to users of a science gateway.
