Limited Capacity seats available

Hands-on. The rapid growth of data in scientific research endeavors is placing massive demands on campus computing centers and high-performance computing (HPC) facilities. Computing facilities must provide robust data services built on high-performance infrastructure, while continuing to scale as needs increase. Traditional research data management (RDM) solutions are typically difficult to use and error-prone, and the underlying networking and security infrastructure is often complex and inflexible, resulting in user frustration and sub-optimal use of resources.

An approach that is increasingly common in HPC facilities includes software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions like Globus Online for moving, syncing, and sharing large data sets. The SaaS approach allows HPC resource owners and systems administrators to deliver enhanced RDM services to end users at optimal quality of service, while minimizing the administrative and operations overhead associated with traditional software. Usage has grown rapidly, with more than 9,500 registered users and over 17 petabytes moved. Globus Online’s reliable file transfer, combined with the recently announced data sharing service, is key functionality for bridging between campus and external resources, and is enabling scientists to more easily scale their research work flows.

Tutorial attendees will explore the challenges such facilities face in delivering scalable RDM solutions. They will be introduced to the RDM functions of Globus Online, learn how other resource owners are using Globus Online, and have the opportunity for hands-on interaction with the service at various levels of technical depth.
