All HPC users need to copy data to or from servers and clusters. Depending on the size of the data, this can be easy or a very frustrating experience. In this Special Topics Session, campus research facilitators will introduce the basic concepts of network-enabled big data transfers, demonstrate basic UNIX tools for data transfers of all sizes, and give an overview of the Globus File Transfer service for large or complex data. In addition to providing concepts and easy how-to guides, the team will also be leading attendees on a short interactive tutorial on the Hummingbird Cluster that teaches them how to apply the demonstrated skills and concepts. At the end of the session, users will have a working knowledge of file transfer techniques, best practices for data collaboration, and they will be able to access the campus Globus File Transfer Service to perform big data transfers themselves.
Pre-registration is not required. All are welcome.
