Petrel: Data Management and Sharing Pilot

The Petrel Data Service pilot provides a mechanism for Argonne researchers and ALCF users to store their data and trivially share with collaborators, without the burden of local account management. This system has been developed and is being operated via collaboration between Argonne Leadership Computing Facility and Globus team. Petrel leverages storage and infrastructure provided by the ALCF, and  Globus Transfer and Sharing services for researchers to store large research data, move data in and out of the system, and to make (subsets) of the data available to their collaborators.
