Wednesday, September 5th
08:30—09:00 registration

We will demonstrate Globus capabilities from the perspectives of an end-user researcher. This is a introduction to the many features of the Globus web application and command line interface, beyond just simple file transfer. You will learn how to share and publish data, and how to set up personal endpoints.


We will provide a detailed walkthrough of installing and configuring a Globus endpoint. We will also review deployment configurations such as multi-server data transfer nodes, using the management console with pause/resume rules, and integrating identity systems for streamlined user authentication. We will discuss connectors to storage systems such as S3, Ceph, HPSS, and Google Drive. You will get to experiment with server endpoint installation using a virtual machine.

10:30—11:00 beverage break

We will demonstrate how you can incorporate Globus capabilities into your own data portals, science gateways, and other web applications that support data-intensive research.


We will present various use cases that illustrate the power of Globus data sharing capabilities, and provide hands-on experience with the Globus file sharing API.

12:30—13:30 lunch

We will review common use cases and demonstrate how the Globus command line interface (CLI) and API may be used to automate repetitive data management tasks. We will also provide specific examples to instruct users how to automate scripted transfers to/from endpoints, and how to have a script return an inventory of data stored on an endpoint.


Participants will learn how Globus may be used in conjunction with the Jupyter platform to open up new avenues in interactive data science. We will walk through sample use cases and provide examples and resources for using Jupyter notebooks with Globus.

15:00—15:30 beverage break

We will explore the various capabilities provided by Globus for assembling, describing, publishing, searching and discovering data sets, and learn how to integrate Globus services into your institutional repository and data publication workflows.


Participants will learn how to use Globus Auth to provide authentication and fine-grained authorization for accessing your own services.
