The XSEDE community and the Jetstream cloud service provider are using Globus Auth to simplify and streamline user authentication and add support for identity linking: especially campus credentials. Jetstream also offers object storage that’s compatible with Amazon Web Services’ Simple Storage Service (S3), and researchers can easily and reliably move research datasets into and out of Jetstream’s object storage using the Globus S3 storage connector.
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.
