A Globus cloud storage connector subscription add-on enables users of a Globus Connect Server endpoint to attach their cloud storage to Globus, enabling transfers to/from their cloud storage. XSEDE's Globus subscription does not include any storage connectors, so cloud storage cannot be attached to XSEDE Globus endpoints. (Individual XSEDE service providers might have their own subscriptions with storage connectors that enable this feature, however.)
