About this Workshop

Vas Vasiliadis, Director, Products, Computation Institute and Chief Customer Officer, Globus
March 18, 2015 - 12:00 CDT

Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center, Pittsburgh, PA

The Operating Innovative Networks (OIN) workshop series is designed to equip university and laboratory network engineers with the knowledge and training needed to build next-gen campus networks that are optimized for data-intensive science. We collaborate closely with ESnet and other workshop organizers to educate research computing resource providers on running and optimizing Globus in the Science DMZ.

Vas Vasiliadis will present a tutorial that includes the following topics:

We recently released a management console for Globus, reflecting our commitment to help resource providers deliver an outstanding research data management service to users at their institution. The console can be used to monitor activity on endpoints, and to identify and troubleshoot faults that may indicate underlying infrastructure issues. We will continue to enhance the management console, adding the ability to suspend, resume, and cancel transfer requests, and get usage metrics.

Our annual user event promises to be bigger and more engaging than ever. GlobusWorld 2015 moves to a two-day format with multiple lightning talk sessions rather than the more formal presentation format of past conferences. As always there are lots of opportunities to learn, meet, and exchange ideas with fellow Globus users from around the world.

On Saturday, March 21, 2015, starting at 10:00am CDT, the Globus service will undergo a significant upgrade. We will be making changes to the underlying services used for managing user identities and groups. While we are deploying these changes into our production environment, the Globus service will not be available. We expect that the upgrade will be completed within 4 hours, and the service should be fully operational by approximately 2pm CDT.

The Advancing Research Computing on Campuses (ARCC) Best Practices Workshop brings together professionals involved in operating and supporting campus shared research computing infrastructure to share experiences and expertise. We are excited to sponsor the workshop and have the opportunity to engage with many existing and prospective Globus users.

We are aware of the announced vulnerability described in CVE-2015-0235 (GHOST). We have investigated the issue and will continue to monitor our systems. Our assessment and mitigating actions are described in our support forum, and we will update this forum post with more detail as necessary. Our risk assessment and recommended actions are summarized below.

We continue to extend the file operations supported by the Globus web interface. The Transfer Files page of the Globus web interface now lets you rename files and folders. This capability was previously available via the command line interface and was just added to the Globus web interface.

The Blue Waters team at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications announced that a new prototype Data Sharing Service (DSS) is now available for Blue Waters users to share data sets with their research community or the broader public. There are two classes of sharing based on the needs of the partners and data: active data sharing for projects with current allocations on Blue Waters, and community sharing for data produced by prior projects. Users from each group can share data using Globus sharing capabilities or a web service interface.

On Monday, December 8, 2014 we'll be updating the Globus file transfer service. As part of this update we're adding another IP address to the service that executes file transfer requests. The majority of our users will see no difference, and any active file transfers will continue without interruption. However, if you have endpoints behind a firewall with tight inbound rules explicitly identifying Globus machines, you will need to update these rules to allow the new IP addresses, otherwise file transfer requests to/from endpoints behind that firewall will fail.
