Gateways 2016: The 11th Gateway Computing Environments Conference

Building a Modern Research Data Portal with Globus

Time: Wednesday, November 2, 10:30AM-12:00PM PDT

Globus is an established service that is widely used for managing research data on XSEDE, DOE, and campus computing resources, and it continues to evolve with the addition of data publication capabilities, and enhancement of the core data transfer and sharing functions. Over the past year we have added new identity and access management functionality that will simplify access to Globus using campus logins, and facilitate the integration of Globus, XSEDE, and other research cyberinfrastructure services into web and mobile applications. In this session we will describe the Globus platform-as-a-service for research data management, and for identity and access management, and demonstrate how developers can use the Globus platform in portals, science gateways, and web applications to deliver advanced data and identity management capabilities to their research communities. A combination of presentation, demonstrations, and code walkthroughs will allow attendees to develop a good understanding of the platform's capabilities and how it can be used in their own work.
