Research Data Management Simplified.

Globus Online is a hosted service that automates the tasks associated with moving files between sites.  Users queue file transfers which are then done asynchronously in the background. 

Globus Online transfers files between "endpoints" which are systems that are registered with the G.O. service. Globus Online manages the data transfer operation for the user: monitoring performance, retrying failures, auto-tuning and recovering from faults automatically where possible, and reporting status. 


Existing Campus Endpoints with Globus:

Transfer your data

Globus provides a secure, unified interface to your research data. Use Globus to 'fire and forget' high-performance data transfers between systems within and across organizations.

Get unified access to your research data, across all systems, using any existing identity.  

Laptop? HPC cluster? Cloud storage? Tape archive? Access them all using just a web browser.  Data stored at a different institution? At a supercomputing facility? All you need is your campus login.

Share your data

Globus lets you share data on your storage systems with collaborators at other institutions. You specify what data. You specify which colleagues. Globus manages access simply and securely, so you can focus on your research.
