ALCF Developer Sessions - February 2020

Automating Research Data Workflows with Globus


This webinar builds on our previous one, which demonstrated how to use Globus to manage data within the ALCF and beyond. During this webinar, we will cover common data management use cases, like synchronization and distribution, and demonstrate how the Globus command line interface (CLI) and API can be used to automate these tasks. We will also provide specific examples to instruct users how to automate scripted transfers to/from endpoints, and how to have a script return an inventory of data stored on an endpoint. You will be able to test drive the Globus CLI and underlying APIs using a Jupyter notebook during and after the webinar.
