September 20, 2022 For researchers and system administrators
12:30 - 13:00 Registration/check-in  
13:00 - 14:15 Introduction to Globus for New Users We will provide a summary review of Globus features targeted at those new to Globus. We will demonstrate how to transfer and share data, and install a Globus Connect Personal endpoint on your laptop. This introduction will provide important context for subsequent sessions.
14:15 - 14:30 Break  
14:30 - 16:00 Globus for System Administrators We will review the Globus Connect Server v5 (GCSv5) architecture and deployment model and describe the process for creating a Globus endpoint on your HPC cluster, lab server, or other multi-user storage system. You will experiment with installing Globus Connect Server, and configuring a number of common options on the endpoint. We will also demonstrate how to monitor and manage user activity, and options for tweaking file transfer performance.
September 21, 2022 For system administrators and developers
9:00 - 10:30 Endpoint Migration and Advanced Administration Topics This is a continuation of the previous session and will focus on the differences between Globus Connect Server versions 4 and 5, migrating to version 5, managing multi-DTN endpoints, mapping user identities, configuring an OIDC server for authentication, and other advanced topics of interest to the audience.
10:30 - 10:45 Break  
10:45 - 11:30 Automating Research Data Flows with Globus We will introduce the various Globus approaches available for automating data flows, including the command line interface (CLI), the Globus Timer server, and the Globus Flows service. You will experiment with simple CLI commands and a Jupyter notebook to automate file transfers and permissions management on shared datasets.
11:30 - 12:15 Introduction to the Globus Platform We will provide a brief introduction to the Globus platform-as-a-service for developers, with an emphasis on understanding the security model; and will demonstrate how to access Globus services via APIs for integration with custom research applications.
