A researcher, educator, or other community member (hereafter referred to as the “researcher”) needs to transfer of one or more files and/or directories from one location to another. Once the researcher specifies the data to be moved and the new location, the system accomplishes the transfer without further involvement by the researcher.
User Importance Summary:
The ability to move data between parts of the computing environment (personal resources, campus resources, XSEDE resources, other research resources, and commercial resources) is essential to the ability to perform many kinds of science. Researchers must be able to move data between any of these resources without expending personal time on unnecessary details (configuration issues or recoverable failures).
