12:30—13:00 registration/check-in

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.

14:15—14:30 break

We will review the Globus Connect Server v5 (GCSv5) architecture and deployment model, and describe 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 how to monitor and manage user activity, and options for tweaking file transfer performance.

September 21, 2022 – for sysadmins and developers
click here to register for Day 2 on the WashU RIS site

This is a continuation of the previous session and will focus on advanced systemn administration topics such as managing multi-DTN endpoints, customized mapping of user identities, public/private deployment configurations, tweaking file transfer performance, and differences/migrating between Globus Connect Server versions 4 and 5.

10:30—10:45 break

We will introduce the various Globus approaches available for automating data flows, including the command line interface (CLI), the Globus Timer service and the Globus Flows service. You will experiment with simple CLI commands and a Jupyter notebook to automate file transfers and permissions management on shared datasets.


We will provide a brief introduction to the Globus platform-as-a-service for developers, with emphasis on understanding the security model; and will demonstrate how to access Globus services via APIs for integration with custom research applications.
