Globus Online available for RCAC systems

November 12, 2013

ITaP has deployed a Globus Online file transfer endpoint to enable Purdue researchers to manage data transfers between the RCAC clusters and data resources, and researchers' labs, laptops, and other computing centers around the world.

GlobusOnline allows researchers to simply fire off a transfer request and walk away — no need to babysit your job or worry about coming back to a failed request.Globus Online manages file transfer for you, monitoring performance, retrying failures, auto-tuning and recovering from faults automatically where possible, and reporting status. All with no custom infrastructure or software to install.

Purdue resources can be accessed at the Globus Online endpoint named purduercac#Purdue.
