- Globus endpoints: Every Globus user has access to two endpoints, Globus Tutorial Endpoint 1 and Globus Tutorial Endpoint 2. These have a 10MB quota and are used mostly to validate that a new Globus account is working.
- ESnet endpoints: ESnet operates a set of read-only test endpoints on DTNs in various locations around the world. These endpoints host multiple datasets varying in size and number of files; they are a great resource for testing network performance. Type "esnet read-only" in the Globus endpoint search field to find these endpoints.
Note: The ESnet endpoints are only accessible if you are connected to a research and education network endpoint (including almost all US universities, national laboratories and supercomputing facilties).
