We will provide a summary review of Globus features targeted at those new to Globus. We will demonstrate how to transfer and share data, and install a Globus Connect Personal endpoint on your laptop. This introduction will provide important context for subsequent sessions - please make every attempt to attend if you are new to Globus or have limited understanding of the capabilities of the service.
We will provide a hands-on walkthrough of installing and configuring a Globus endpoint. We will review the process for creating a Globus endpoint on your HPC cluster, lab server, or other multi-user storage system, and you will experiment with installing Globus Connect Server and configuring a number of common options on the endpoint.
We will introduce the Globus Platform-as-a-Service and describe how it may be used to deliver unique data management capabilities in your own applications. This will include an overview of common use cases such as data publication/distribution, orchestration of data flows, etc., a description of the platform architecture, and a brief overview of available platform services. You will experiment with the Globus Transfer API using a Jupyter notebook.
We will review common use cases and demonstrate how the Globus command line interface (CLI) and API may be used to prepare scripts for automating repetitive data management tasks. We will also provide a brief walkthrough of the design pattern for building a Modern Research Data Portal.
