The Globus platform enables developers to provide robust file transfer and sharing within their own research data applications and services, while leveraging advanced identity management, single sign-on, and authorization capabilities.
Your portal, science gateway, web or mobile application now has access to all file transfer and sharing functions provided by Globus. The platform exposes the same APIs we use for our own web application that serves the data management needs of over 50,000 researchers around the world.
Login/logout, access control, identity and profile management are common to all applications. Why waste precious resources building mundane—but necessary—functions? By outsourcing these aspects to Globus you can focus all your efforts on core application logic.
