05.02 - Globus

Globus Connect Personal is the latest whizbang tool for moving large data sets between hosts and facilities.

Based on GridFTP, an extension of the older, well-worn FTP, Globus has enhanced features such as parallel streams, increased security, and automatic restart to recover from network and server hiccups.

What this means to the user is faster, more robust transfers of ever-growing data sets.
Clients are available for Linux, Windows, and Mac, with the added benefit that you can do it yourself, your grumpy System Administrator doesn't need to get involved.

Follow the Globus link to learn how to get started.
