Fast, reliable research data transfers
Globus makes it easy for researchers to collaborate and share large-scale data across organisational boundaries using a web browser, command line interface tool or custom-built application.
Globus allows researchers to access their research data from local storage, institutional storage, tape archives, commercial cloud storage, HPC systems and scientific instruments all from a single web browser.
The ‘fire and forget’ model of Globus means that researchers can concentrate on their research while Globus handles the mundane (but important) details to successfully carry out large-scale data transfers across the AARNet high-speed network.
A Globus subscription through AARNet provides Australian researchers with a robust and security-conscious solution for transferring large-scale research data.
With the secure and fast data sharing enabled by Globus and the high-bandwidth AARNet network, we can transfer large data sets both nationally and internationally, which makes collaborations easier and faster.”
