  • ATLAS Experiment with Cori and Theta

    National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF)

    The ATLAS experiment is a general purpose particle detector based at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator. ATLAS scientists use Globus to transfer data between Theta, the ALCF's Intel-Cray system which serves as a bridge to exascale, and NERSC's Cori supercomputer.

  • Brain Mapping and Neurobiology

    University of Chicago, Argonne National Laboratory

    The Kasthuri lab at the University of Chicago and Argonne is pioneering new techniques for brain mapping of the fine structure of the nervous system – 'connectomics' and 'projectomics'. They hope to help answer questions like: how do brains learn as they grow up? And how do brains differ across individuals and across species? And how can we reverse engineer brain function in our own computers and robots? Globus is used by these researchers for file transfer and sharing.

  • Data Sharing via Globus in the NIH Intramural Program


    The HPC facility at the National Institutes of Health's Intramural campus has had a Globus endpoint since 2012. Globus is used routinely for data transfer along with other methods, but the Globus data-sharing capabilities in particular have been enthusiastically embraced by the NIH HPC users.
