Use Cases:
CAN-02: Managed File Transfer, CB-04: Access campus research data from XSEDE resources, CB-09: Access an XSEDE-hosted research data collection from campus, CB-10: Synchronize research data between campus and XSEDE resources, CB-11: Archive research data on an XSEDE resource, DA-02: Data preparation, DM-01: Share a common repository of data with a distributed user community, DM-02: Data Management for Distributed Simulation and Analysis, DM-03: Shared use of large-scale/streaming sensor input data, DM-04: Migration of data associated with change of primary computational site, SGW-02: Science Gateway community file transfers, SGW-04: Data movement between gateway users' desktops/laptops and XSEDE resources


The CDPs for all use cases related to CAN-2 (managed file transfer) need to be revised to use the Globus Connect Server (GCS) software distribution instead of the older XSEDE GridFTP software distribution. We will need to first identify the XSEDE-specific requirements that GCS does not satisfy "out of the box" and the additional configuration steps necessary to satisfy those requirements.

The deliverable for this activity will be a set of revised CDPs. Each CDP will then have a set of XCI "Enhanced Capability" activities associated with it.
