Globus facilitates file transfer for data lifecycle management, from generation to analysis platforms to archive. We use Globus to share data with users of our facility, both from our centrally managed bioinformatics infrastructure or investigator’s own machines. We also use Amazon S3 endpoints to move data for archival storage; once in S3, lifecycle rules move the data to Amazon Glacier.

EBI is one of the world's leading providers of life science data to a global community. Moving data from where it is generated, to and from archives and to where the user wishes to analyze it, is supported via Globus.
