|Tue. September 12, 2017 - for researchers and system administrators|
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 review the process for creating a Globus endpoint on your HPC cluster, lab server, or other multi-user storage system. You will experiment with installing Globus Connect Server, and configuring a number of common options on the endpoint.
We will provide more detailed reviews of administrator features (e.g. using the management console with pause/resume rules) and Globus Connect Server configuration options (e.g. multi-server data transfer nodes, and integrating institutional identity providers for streamlined user authentication). This session will combine presentation and interactive discussion around your specific Globus deployment scenarios and issues.
|Wed. September 13, 2017 - for developers|
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 demonstrate and expore the construction of a simple, fully functional data portal that uses the Globus platform. A review of the Globus Auth service will be followed by a walkthrough of the process for authenticating users and authorizing client applications. We will illustrate how Globus Auth may be used to easily provide login/logout and authorization to resources within your own applications and services.
Open discussion on audience topics
The Globus team will be available for personal discussions and advice on any topic of interest for your organization.
