Data Transfer Node Service [NOT YET Available]

A Data Transfer Node (DTN) provides a high-performance method to transfer data to and from the HPCF storage. This is achieved using Globus Online, a web-based service that solves many of the challenges encountered moving large volumes of data between systems. While NeSI supports use of other data transfer tools and protocols such as scp, Globus Online provides the most comprehensive, efficient, and easy to use service for most NeSI users.

To use Globus from within NeSI, you need a Globus ID. If you don't have one, sign up at https://www.globusid.org, following the instructions at Register for a Globus ID).
