What is Globus?

Globus is used for transferring, sharing, and discovering data via a web browser. It allows collaboration with other researchers, without requiring them to have accounts on QMUL systems. Globus uses widely-adopted industry standards for authentication and authorisation, as well as GridFTP and HTTPS protocols. Globus lets you share data with collaborators at other research institutions, whether your data exists on Apocrita, Tape archive, Scientific instrument or Laptop/PC.
