solution-brief-globus-caringoAbstract: With variability in HPC and research workflows, use cases and project funding awards, data sets are often stored on a diverse range of storage devices. To facilitate time to discovery, the data on these dispersed devices needs to be shared. Historically, this meant providing direct device access, manually managing access permissions, or—if bandwidth (and time) permitted—moving large data sets.

Caringo and Globus solve these issues by combining the benefits of S3-enabled private cloud storage with secure, reliable research data management services.
