New Globus endpoint makes it easier to transfer large data sets to/from NeSI HPC Platform

NeSI has created a new endpoint to improve data transfer capabilities to and from NeSI's HPC platform. The new endpoint is called NeSI Wellington DTN V5 and we encourage you to begin using it immediately.

The old NeSI endpoint, NeSI Wellington DTN, will be deactivated on 8 December 2021.

What this change means for you:

  • If you've ever created a bookmark or shared a collection to the NeSI endpoint, you will need to re-create and/or re-share using the new endpoint name - NeSI Wellington DTN V5. Instructions are available here.

Endpoint functionality improvements:

Some of the improvements you'll notice as a result of the endpoint upgrade include:

  • HTTPS (web) access for easier data downloading and uploading directly from browsers
  • 'Shared Collections' are now called 'Guest Collections'

User Q&A session:

We hosted a short information session on 24 November to share more details and a demo of the new endpoint features. The recording is embedded below:

If you would like more information about the endpoint upgrade, you can refer to these documentation pages in NeSI Support or send questions to
