Introduction

Globus is a non-profit service for moving, syncing, and sharing large amounts of data asynchronously in the background. Transfers are done from and to, so called, endpoints. In order to perform a file transfer from one location to another using the Globus service, both ends must have an endpoint.

Zinc Globus Endpoint is:

ucsfbks#zinc

default path= /mnt/nfs/ex3/published/


Step 1

Create an account to log in to Globus. There are a couple ways:

  • Use an Organization's login
    • If you are associated to an organization in the drop down list, you can use your organization's login to create an account.
    • You can also sign up using a Google account or ORCiD ID
  • Create a Globus ID


Step 2

To install and create a Globus Personal Endpoint:

  • Log in.
  • On the left side of the page, click the "ENDPOINTS" button on the navigation bar.
  • Then, on the top right, click "Create a Personal Endpoint".
  • Download based on your Operating System.
  • Execute the file and follow the on screen install instructions.
  • Double check that your collection is available by going to "ENDPOINTS" then to "Administered By You" which is on the top middle of the page.

***Instructions on how to install are provided here ***


Step 3

Once you have your endpoint, go back to the file manager tab on the navigation bar to begin file transfer.
