Advancing Innovation with ACCESS

Research CI is a key catalyst for discovery and innovation. It plays a critical role in ensuring U.S. leadership in S&E, economic competitiveness and national security, consistent with the National Science Foundation’s mission. The NSF, through the Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (OAC), has published a vision that calls for the broad availability and innovative use of an agile, integrated, robust, trustworthy and sustainable CI ecosystem that can drive new thinking and transformative discoveries in all areas of S&E research and education.

Globus Helps Researchers Migrate Data on XSEDE’s Comet Supercomputer

Comet SC.jpg

During the month of July 2021 Globus transferred over 800 Terabytes of data on Comet, a dedicated NSF funded eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) cluster at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC).

While Comet is now officially retired, users will still have access to the Comet filesystems via Globus to facilitate data migration.

Comet was originally deployed for researchers to perform computational research at modest scale and to support science gateways such as the Cosmic2 gateway, a web platform for Cryo-Electron Microscopy data analysis, which is one of many gateways that leverage Globus to transfer data.
