Sommaire

Description

Globus (previously Globus Online) is a web service designed to help with large data transfer between data centers. Here are some of the advantages compared to traditional data transfer tools:

  1. Globus is a frontend to gridftp servers, which are designed to maximize transfer rates between sites. It is therefore sometimes possible to reach higher transfer rates than would be possible with tools such as scp.
  2. Data transfer through Globus do not require user assitance. When the transfer is completed, Globus sends an email to the user. If there is a problem during the transfer, Globus will retry automatically a number of times.
  3. Globus provides a drag-and-drop user interface which eliminates the need for command line interface.

How does it work

To use Globus, you first need to create a user account on their website. Once this is done, you will be able to choose between a large number of endpoints between which you will be transfering data. Once the endpoints chosen, you will require to provide connection information to Globus so it can connect to the server.

Attention
By giving your credentials to Globus, you give permission to Globus to see the list of your files, without seeing their content. If you have security or privacy considerations for your files, see Globus' Privacy policy as well as the following pages.

Endpoints at Calcul Québec

Briarée, Colosse, Guillimin, Mammouth-Mp2 and Mammouth-Ms2 provide Globus endpoints at Calcul Québec. For the name of the endpoints and the connection instructions, see #Server-specific documentation.

Personal endpoint: Globus Connect Personal

Globus Connect is a package containing the components required to create an endpoint on any computer. Globus Connect Personal creates an endpoint on Linux, Mac OSX or Windows to which a single user can connect.

Server specific documentation

Briarée

Name of the endpoint: computecanada#briaree

Briarée uses an authentication managed by our servers. You must use the same username and password as the ones you use to connect to Briarée. Those credentials are never sent to Globus, but our server gives a key to Globus allowing it to connect to your account.

Colosse

Name of the endpoint: computecanada#colosse-dtn2

Identification
