|Day One – for researchers and sysadmins|
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 also demonstrate premium features such as the real-time console for monitoring user activity and options for tweaking file transfer performance.
We will describe a series of use cases and demonstrate how Globus simplifies data management in each case. Globus capabilities will be presented from the perspective of the researcher and system administrator.
|Day Two – for sysadmins and developers|
We will introduce the Globus command line interface (CLI) and demonstrate how it may be used to automate repetitive data management tasks. You will experiment with simple CLI commands and scripts for controlling access and distributing shared data to collaborators.
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 a description of the platform architecture, and an overview of available services. You will experiment with the Globus Transfer API using a Jupyter notebook and understand how the Globus Auth service may be used for authenticating users and authorizing access to resources in your own applications.
We will describe how advanced data management capabilities may be integrated into your own data flows using the Globus CLI and platform APIs.
We will be available for smaller group or individual discussions to advise on any data management topic of interest for your organization. Please contact us if you wish to set up a specific time.
