Introduction to Globus

Many CAC resources are on Globus for high speed file transfers. Globus uses multiple parallel TCP streams to achieve high throughput. Globus also monitors file transfers and automatically retries when errors are encountered. It provides a fast and reliable method for transferring research data to and from CAC.

First-Time Use

  1. Sign up for an account on Globus.
  2. If you need to transfer files to and from your local laptop or desktop, download and install Globus Connect Personal on your host.
  3. To use Globus web interface, log into your Globus account and start transfer files.
  4. To use Globus command line interface (CLI) or script your file transfers, read the Using Command Line Interface documentation for more information.
