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.

We’ve had a great couple days since Monday… see below for session highlights and some answers to questions that arose: Our sessions on “Globus and GridFTP: What’s New in 2011” and “Using Globus Online for Reliable, Secure File Transfer” each had fantastic turnouts with over 50 people in the room! Lots of love for Globus Online following the demos in particular, where many folks familiar with the complexities in setting up Globus appreciated GO's simplicity tremendously.

Globus Online is well represented at TG11 this year – we ran 2 tutorials on Monday, we’re delivering 2 talks today (on GO and GridFTP) and we’ve got a BOF later in the week.

A few months back, we launched a “User of the Month” program to highlight innovative and impactful usage of Globus Online that the entire user community might want to hear about.

For our 3rd User of the Month, I’m very pleased to announce that we have chosen Katrin Heitmann from Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL).

In the Transfer Web Interface (Web GUI), when you first access an endpoint you are prompted for your MyProxy username and passphrase. Once you provide this information, you can browse your files and perform transfers to and from the endpoint. This blog post is about what happens behind the scenes to make that happen.

Part of my work for Globus Online User Services involves moving a great deal of data. Indeed, within the past 7 months I have singlehandedly moved over a petabyte of data using Globus Online. For any given transfer, verifying that the data at the destination matches the source is not always necessary (such as when executing a test run preparatory to a large transfer, or trying to better understand the user interactions enabled by a new GO feature.) In these cases the transferred data is a mere side effect.

.. 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.

I get a kick out of seeing "ordinary" information technologies make new kinds of science possible. For example, the ability to move and share digital data is a pretty mundane topic in computer science circles. The mass market entertainment industry (think: iTunes, Netflix) has even brought streaming data and multi-megabyte files into our living rooms--for fun! Despite this dramatic adoption and transformation in some industries, there are still plenty of areas where the effects are being felt for the first time.
