Chief Customer Officer, Globus
University of Chicago
The University of Chicago develops and operates the Globus software-as-a-service for data management, used by over 100,000 researchers at universities, national labs, and federal facilities. The Globus platform provides high-speed, reliable file transfer, data sharing, and data publication, as well as federated identity infrastructure that facilitates collaboration across diverse security domains and organizational boundaries. All services are accessible via browser, command line, and REST APIs, enabling access for users with widely differing needs and technical expertise. We will describe, and briefly demonstrate, a number of common use cases, including how researchers can easily access large public data repositories, manage data egress from scientific instruments, and scale interactive data science by integrating with Jupyter notebooks.
