(FOR RELEASE: December 13, 2011) ITHACA, N.Y. – Steve Tuecke, Deputy Director at The University of Chicago’s Computation Institute (CI) will present “Globus Online: Reliable, high-performance file transfer as a service” at a lunchtime seminar hosted by the Cornell University Center for Advanced Computing on Thursday, January 12 in room 655 of Frank Rhodes Hall, from 11:30 am -1:00 pm. Lunch will be provided. Advanced registration is required; contact Mary Yetsko at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The presentation and live demonstration will introduce Globus Online, a Software as a Service that provides fast, easy, reliable file transfer in order to simplify large-scale data movement by researchers. Seminar attendees will learn how to create a Globus Online account and use browser and command line interfaces to move data amongst all the resources they have access to, including national supercomputing facilities such as XSEDE and NERSC, campus clusters, lab servers, and even laptops behind firewalls. The seminar will also include an overview of how the service works, highlights from several case studies, and discussion of the future evolution of Globus Online beyond file transfer into cloud-based storage and collaboration.
Tuecke co-founded the Globus Project, with Dr. Ian Foster and Dr. Carl Kesselman. He was responsible for managing the architecture, design, and development of Globus software, as well as the Grid and Web Services standards that underlie it. He received a Technology Review TR100 award, recognizing him as one of the world’s top 100 young innovators and was named by InfoWorld as one of its Top 10 Technology Innovators.
The Cornell University Center of Advanced Computing (CAC) is a leader in high-performance computing systems, applications, and data solutions that enable research success.
