Gigabytes, terabytes, petabytes—research data is large and distributed. Globus, a non-profit service managed by the University of Chicago, is both an alliance and a suite of tools built around research data. Globus permits unified access to research data across all systems (high performance computing cluster, laptop, in-cloud or on-premise storage) using any existing identity. Globus lets you efficiently, securely, and reliably transfer data directly between systems separated by an office wall or an ocean. Application programming interfaces and software development kits empower users to create their own unique, integrated ecosystem of research data services and applications.

CGIAR Big Data Platform has completed integration of Globus with the CGIAR email active directory, and has a few pilot use-cases demonstrating the potential power of this shared service for connecting with partners and big-data enabling the agriculture development enterprise.
