In 2014, Compute Canada deployed the Globus File Transfer Service (FTS) across its entire network (24 storage sites). This platform allows researchers to move data in and out of Compute Canada storage through a web interface or through code written to leverage the Globus service. Researchers have full control over data access and can choose to share their datasets with any collaborator anywhere in the world. Since the launch of the Compute Canada Globus FTS, researchers have used it to move more than 2 PB of data.

  • Launched in 2014
  • 1.7 PB transferred
  • 200+ million files transferred
  • More than 24 enabled Compute Canada sites
