RMCMOA tutorial - Globus - An Introduction to Using and Administering Globus for Research Data Management
Limited Capacity seats available

Over the past four years, Globus has become a preferred service for moving and sharing research data at hundreds of campuses across the U.S. and abroad. With the recent release of data publication and discovery capabilities, Globus now provides useful tools for managing data at every stage of the research lifecycle. In the first half of this session, participants will learn about the features of the Globus service, and how to use it for delivering robust research data management services that span campus systems, national cyberinfrastructure, and public cloud resources. In the second half of this session, participants will learn how to connect your own storage systems to the Globus service. This session is designed for research computing providers and users who are new to Globus, and will help you answer questions like: How can Globus help researchers simplify the transfer, sharing, and publication of increasingly “big” data? How can a campus computing facility efficiently deliver research data management services to end users? How can such services be integrated into existing campus computing infrastructure? What issues are typically encountered in setting up data transfer nodes (e.g. security), and how should they be addressed?  Note: We encourage you to also attend the later session titled “Globus New Features and Roundtable Discussion”, where we will discuss Globus in more depth with experienced Globus admins.

RMCMOA – Big Data - Globus New Features and Roundtable Discussion
Limited Capacity seats available

We invite campus research computing administrators (and all Globus users) to a demonstration of new Globus features (e.g., data publication, sharing enhancements, management console), a presentation of future Globus directions, and an open roundtable discussion. We would like you to share experiences about your usage of Globus, and solicit input on new feature requests. This will be a great opportunity to meet and engage with the Globus team and other Globus users in an informal setting. Bring your toughest questions! If you're planning to attend, you may want to browse our new feature request forum (https://support.globus.org/forums/20533066) and select features that are of particular interest to consider in the discussion.
