Globus is a cloud-based service designed to let users move, share, and discover research data via a single interface, regardless of its location or number of files or size.
Globus was developed and is maintained at the University of Chicago and is used extensively at supercomputer centers and major research facilities.
Globus is available as a free service that any user can access. More on how Globus works can be found on the Globus "How It Works" page.

Data Sharing with Service Account
