XSEDE's 5th annual conference will showcase the discoveries, innovations, challenges and achievements of those who utilize and support XSEDE resources and services. In keeping with this year's conference theme, and recognizing the diversity of scientific applications dealing with big data, the Globus team is investing heavily in educating developers within and beyond the XSEDE community on best practices for developing modern research data portals that meet the unique needs of researchers.

Argonne researchers and staff now have access to the Globus data management service. A number of storage systems at the lab are already enabled for Globus use, including Mira, Vesta and the tape archive at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (LCF); various systems at the Laboratory Computing Resource Center (LCRC) and Center for Nanoscience Materials (CNM); and several beamlines at the Advanced Photon Source (APS). Argonne researchers have used Globus for many years to replace cumbersome and error-prone file transfer mechanisms such as sftp and rsync.

The Federation of Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP Federation) is a broad-based community drawn from agencies and individuals who collectively provide end-to-end handling for Earth and environmental science data and information. The theme of the 2015 Summer Meeting is "The Federation of Earth Science Information Partners and Community Resilience: Coming Together". Rachana will be representing Globus and our extensive work with the climate community on all aspects of data management and collaboration.

We're excited to join our European colleagues at the European Globus Community Forum (EGCF), which is co-located with the European Grid Infrastructure (EGI) 2015 conference. The EGCF annual event provides a unique opportunity for Globus users Europe to familiarize themselves with recent developments and to introduce and discuss their work, challenges, solutions, and best practices within a community atmosphere. The event also gives participants the chance to provide feedback on Globus technologies, as well as present any Globus requirements they may have for their research.

We've been operating the Globus Online file transfer service for 10 months now, and along the way we've learned a thing or two about handling data for scientists.

.. is that they now come with enormous disks. So we are seeing research workers storing everything from patient Xrays to car proving-ground videos on their Windows-7 machines with terabyte disks.

Last month we launched a “User of the Month” program to draw attention to particularly impressive, innovative and/or widely applicable usage scenarios that the entire user community should know about. For our 2nd User of the Month, I’m happy to announce that we have selected Steven Gottlieb from Indiana University.

As I pondered what tone to set for this blog, I tried to put myself in the shoes of the professional researcher. While I’ve lived that life, the everyday life of the dedicated, full-time researcher today has changed (and is changing) beyond what I’ve experienced, and I feel for you all out there who are challenged day-in, day-out with getting your work done in a rapidly changing world. For many researchers today, it’s all about wrangling massive data using faster and faster computers, while also struggling to keep ahead of the crowd by forging and sustaining ever-more-ambitious interdisciplinary collaborations. Those of you who have access to the right tools for these tasks are in the minority: Sure, big science projects have capabilities for getting and working with the data they need. But the average hardworking independent researcher or smaller lab does not. So the challenge (and opportunity) is to make these capabilities accessible not just to a few “big science” projects but to every researcher everywhere.
