Using Globus to Move Large Data Sets
If you need to copy large datasets (>100GB) over the WAN then Globus is the right tool for the job. Globus provides services for transferring large datasets and enables you to quickly, securely, and reliably move your data to and from locations/endpoints you have access to. There is a Globus endpoint in the ESIF datacenter (nrel#globus) that allows you to copy files using Globus to /scratch on Peregrine. If you need to copy files to your laptop/desktop using Globus then you can use Globus Personal to make your desktop/laptop a Globus endpoint. To share files from your Globus Personal endpoint you will need a Globus Plus account, to request a Globus Plus account email firstname.lastname@example.org.
