Arecibo Observatory’s main instrument fell victim to economics, entropy, and finally gravity. In an effort to bring the golden copy of data to a replica site, a multi-institutional virtual performance team formed. This performance team, using Globus and data movement best practices with resources at hand, is on the road to completion of the primary mission to preserve the data generated by Arecibo Observatory. This is a talk about the adventures Arecibo Observatory has been through, lessons other large facilities can take to heart, and the efforts and collaboration the virtual performance team has conducted to get the priceless Arecibo Observatory data to safety.

This is a crash course in Globus for those new to the service. We will cover a broad range of topics at an introductory level, including moving and sharing data, setting up a Globus Connect Server endpoint, and using the Globus command line interface. System administrators and end users will likely find something of interest in this session.

For those who are comfortable drinking from the proverbial firehose, we will review Globus services such as Auth, Transfer, Search, and Automate, and discuss common use cases for integrating Globus into your applications. For developers working on a data portal, science gateway, data commons, or other application, this is a great introduction to using the RESTful APIs provided by the Globus platform.
