When any successful project attracts a large community, there will be growing pains. Since its launch in 2015, the experimental cloud computing testbed Chameleon has realized its vision of becoming a shared scientific instrument for computer science research and education. The project, led by Argonne Senior Scientist and UChicago CASE Affiliate Kate Keahey, has supported over 800 projects and 6,000 users from around the world and developed several new applications and deployments.

Using Globus at UCSD

Globus is software-as-a-service for research data management and provides high-speed, secure file transfer, and file sharing directly from existing storage systems. Globus is operated by the University of Chicago and uses a freemium model, supported through subscriptions from campuses like UCSD. This gives UCSD researchers access to additional capabilities, including sharing with collaborators and using Globus with protected data.

Globus Connect Server v5 Deployment and Migration

Globus Connect Server v5 (GCSv5) introduced a new architecture and deployment model for the software that enables access to storage systems via the Globus service. We will provide an overview of the GCSv5 architecture, installation and configuration. We will review the key changes that system administrators should be aware of when deploying new Globus endpoints and will discuss the process for migrating from prior versions of Globus Connect Server to GCSv5.
