Tutorial: Enhanced Campus Bridging via a Campus Data Service Using Globus and the Science DMZ

Prerequisites: We would like to ask participants to bring a laptop with a "modern" web browser (and, ideally, an SSH client) installed. 

Existing campus data services are limited in their reach and utility due, in part, to unreliable tools and a wide variety of storage systems with sub-optimal user interfaces. Further, the underlying networking and security infrastructure on most campuses is complex and inflexible, resulting in many challenges to effective campus bridging. In this session, participants will learn how to deliver robust services for managing research data that span campus systems, national cyberinfrastructure, and public cloud resources.

An increasingly common solution to campus bridging comprises Globus operating within the Science DMZ, enabling reliable, secure file transfer and sharing, while optimizing use of existing high-speed network connections and campus identity infrastructures. The combined solution allows research computing resource owners and systems administrators to deliver enhanced campus data services to end users at optimal quality of service, while ensuring predictable network performance and integrity. Globus is installed at most XSEDE resource providers and we will draw on experiences from research computing centers (Cornell University) and HPC facilities (SDSC) to highlight the challenges such facilities face in delivering scalable campus data services. Attendees will be introduced to Globus and to the components of the Science DMZ, and have the opportunity for hands-on interaction with these systems
