The Data Transfer Node (DTN) at Rice facilitates the movement of data into and out of the "work" shared filesystem available on DAVinCI, STIC, and Blue Biou and "scratch" shared filesystem available on DAVinCI, Blue Gene/P, and Blue Biou. It provides massively parallel file transfers so facilitate moving large data sets efficiently. You will be able to move data between participating institutions available via globus. Additionally, if you install and configure the Globus Connect software you will be able to transfer files using your local computer as an Endpoint.
Prerequisite for Using This System
You must have a globus online account.
You must read the relevant quick start guides on https://www.globus.org/
You must have a cluster account.
Using Globus to transfer files
You will utilize the Endpoint named: rice#dtn
Your path destination or source will be in the "work" shared filesystem available only on DAVinCI, STIC, and Blue Biou. You will need to pick a subdirectory of "work" with which you have access to receive or send data.
