I am happy to announce that the user of the month for January 2013 is Ann Syrowski from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Ann is a Research Professional in the Atmospheric Science department's Convective Modeling Group. She develops numerical simulations of severe storms using the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model and several HPCs throughout the country. Ann has moved more than 100 TB of data using Globus Online—50 TB in the past month alone—among a variety of HPC resources including XSEDE resources, NCSA's mass storage system, and PSC's data archiver.

My name is Peter Hadlaw and this was my first summer as an intern with the Globus Online team.  I have been around programming, design, and development for over 5 years now.  When I return back to school, I'll be finishing up high school as a senior at Maine South HS.  This summer I made an open source Android app for Globus Online.

If This Then That (www.ifttt.com) is an intriguing new service for managing and integrating social media. It lets you specify simple rules of the form:

if <this event> then do <that action>

...where <this event> may be something like arrival of an email, a local weather forecast of rain, or a new blog post on Tumblr, and <that action> can be something like send an SMS message or an email, or post to EverNote or Facebook.

In our work with many hundreds of researchers who work in smaller labs, we’ve learned a few things about what is likely to be adopted and what is likely to go nowhere. For these scientists, who represent the majority of researchers working today, cyberinfrastructure can’t be delivered by providing software to be installed in a lab: they too often lack the local infrastructure and expertise.

Picture this: You just got access to an awesome dataset, and you can't wait to start tinkering with it. Maybe it's stored in some remote observatory, or maybe it's right there in your laptop. Wherever it is, Globus Online can help you move it somewhere with serious computational muscle, so you can start hacking away at those oodles of data.

Except... you don't actually have an account on one of those fancy clusters or supercomputers.

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.

For the September User of the Month, I’m happy to announce that we have selected Sarah Kenny from the University of California, Irvine.

When people hear about Globus Online they probably think of simplified online file transfer using a GUI. And while this is certainly true, what some people don’t realize is that, in addition to the nifty Web 2.0 interface, Globus Online also provides a powerful API developers can use to integrate Globus Online into their own applications, to localize the transfer experience.

For August User of the Month, I’m pleased to announce we have selected Greg Daues from NCSA (National Center for Supercomputing Applications).
