<span id="title-text"> HCC-DOCS : Globus Connect </span>
========================================================

Created by <span class="author"> Emelie Harstad</span>, last modified by
<span class="editor"> Carrie Brown</span> on Oct 27, 2017

<a href="https://www.globus.org/globus-connect" class="external-link">Globus Connect</a> is
a fast and robust file transfer service that allows users to quickly
move large amounts of data between computer clusters and even to and
from personal workstations.  This service has been made available for
Tusker, Crane and Sandhills, and HCC users are encouraged to use Globus
Connect for their larger data transfers as an alternative to slower and
more error-prone methods such as scp and winSCP. 

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

<span
style="color: rgb(0,0,0);font-size: 16.0px;line-height: 1.5625;">Globus
Connect Advantages</span>

-   Dedicated transfer servers on Tusker, Crane and Sandhills allow
    large amounts of data to be transferred quickly between sites.

-   A user can install Globus Connect Personal on his or her workstation
    to enable data transfer to and from one of the HCC sites.

-   Globus will notify users via email when their transfer has
    completed.

-   Users can share data with other researchers who have Globus
    accounts.

-   Globus' simple web interface makes data transfers and sharing easy
    for users to initiate and manage. 

      

Getting Started

Users must first sign up for an account on
the <a href="https://www.globus.org/SignUp" class="external-link">Globus Connect website</a>.
 Accounts are free and grant users access to any Globus endpoint for
which they are authorized.  An endpoint is simply a file system to or
from which a user transfers files.  All HCC users are authorized to
access their own /home and /work directories on Tusker, Crane and
Sandhills via the Globus endpoints (named: `hcc#tusker``hcc#crane` and
`hcc#sandhills`).  Those who have purchased Attic storage space can
access their /attic directories via the Globus endpoint hcc\#attic. To
initialize or activate the endpoint, users will be required to enter
their HCC username, password, and Duo credentials for authentication.
 The steps involved in activating endpoints and making data transfers
are fairly straight-forward, and are described in more detail in the
links on the right.

Globus Connect CLI

<span
class="aui-icon aui-icon-small aui-iconfont-approve confluence-information-macro-icon"></span>

If you wish, you may use the [Globus Command Line
Interface](Globus-Command-Line-Interface_21071051.html) instead of the
web interface.

**Usage Instructions**

Use these links to learn more about the Globus Connect features. You

functions.  Please contact us
