Transferring Data using Globus
Globus is a high-speed data transfer service. It is primarily used to transfer data between research institutions, but can also be used to transfer data between Beocat and a laptop or desktop. We suggest using Globus over other file transfer options if you are transferring large data sets. Globus also allows you to share data with those who do not have Beocat accounts.
Beocat has two Globus servers - one on the main campus network, and one directly connected to KanREN (essentially for our purposes, the university's Internet Service Provider). To understand which one you should be using an overview of how Beocat connects to the Internet is useful:
