SRCC hosting Globus Workshop

February 8, 2018 - 12:30pm to February 9, 2018 - 4:30pm
Redwood Hall G19

SRCC will be hosting a Globus workshop!

Thu, Feb 8 from 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm  and Fri, Feb 9 from 9:30 am - 4:00 pm in Redwood Hall G19.

Globus is great for moving large amounts of data to and from our HPC clusters.  We have Globus endpoints setup on Sherlock and SCG clusters.

Globus provides cloud-based services for reliably moving, sharing, publishing and discovering data -- with Globus, users get unified access to all their data via a single interface. Whether your files live on a supercomputer, lab cluster, tape archive, public cloud, or your own laptop, you can manage this data from anywhere, using your existing identities, via just a web browser.​

Registration: No charge to attend Limited to 50 attendees

Globus ( is a research data management service developed by the University of Chicago and is used by hundreds of thousands of researchers at institutions in the US and abroad. The Globus team is presenting a series of workshops across the US, targeted at system administrators who have deployed (or are planning to deploy) Globus at their institution, developers building applications for research, and anyone who is interested in learning more about the de-facto service for research data management. More details are available here:

We invite you to attend the workshop being held at Stanford University on February 8-9, 2018. The workshop is free to attend but you must register as space is limited.

Those new to Globus will learn about features that support data management throughout the research lifecycle. System administrators will learn about advanced Globus endpoint configurations and have the opportunity to discuss their specific use cases with Globus staff. Developers will learn how the Globus APIs provide intuitive access to authentication, authorization, sharing, transfer, and synchronization capabilities. Companion iPython/Jupyter notebooks will provide application skeletons that you can adapt to realize your own research data portals, science gateways, and other web applications that support research data workflows.

We hope you will join us!
