The Globus Online cookbook describes how the 'SRM type' storage services that are federated into EGI can be used as endpoints of file transfers managed by Globus Online. The "biomed" VO is used as an example in the Cookbook to demonstrate EGI storage usage, but the steps are the same for other EGI VOs as well.

The cookbook was prepared as a guide for EGI Virtual Organisations (VOs) on how to use the Globus Online service that is available at http://www.globusonline.eu. GlobusOnline.eu provides robust and easy to use file transfer capabilities for EGI users. The service manages file transfers for you, monitoring performance, retrying failures, auto-tuning and recovering from faults automatically where possible, and reporting status.

The Cookbook consists of two parts:

  1. Cookbook for VO managers: The first part provides step-by-step instructions for VO Managers on how to register SRM storage services in Globus Online in such a way, that these appear as transfer endpoints for VO members. This registration could be performed by any member of a VO, however for most VOs the VO Manager is the most suitable person to complete this step because the VO Manager has sufficient knowledge on storage sites that support the VO and about the BDII information system where detailed information about the storages is recorded.
  2. Cookbook for researchers: The second part provides step-by-step instructions for VO members on how to use VO storage endpoints in Globus Online. This part is relevant for any meber of any EGI VO. The list of EGI VOs and information on joining these VOs is available at http://operations-portal.egi.eu/vo.

This cookbook has been prepared by the EGI.eu User Community Support Team in consultation with representatives of EGI Operations, storage technology and information system developer groups. Please email any feedback about this Cookbook to the EGI.eu User Community Support Team: ucst@egi.eu.

Cookbook for VO managers

Globus Online provides a provides robust and easy way for scientists to transfer and share files across multiple locations. Now the EGI.eu User Community Support Team is publishing the 'Globus Online cookbook' to help virtual research organisations to make the most of the service. EGI provides access to Globus Online file transfer services via a portal front-end (http://www.globusonline.eu). This is straightforward for the end-users, but adding EGI resource centres as endpoints is not a trivial task for Virtual Organisations (VO) managers and system administrators. To counter the problem, the EGI.eu User Community Support Team (UCST) prepared a ‘Globus Online cookbook’ for VO managers. The cookbook provides step-by-step instructions on how to register EGI 'SRM-type' storage services as endpoints of file transfers managed by Globus Online. This will help VO managers to set up the system and make the Globus Online file transfer service available to their researchers. The second part of the cookbook was designed to help individual researchers to move data and files securely across resource centres and institutions. To benefit from this service, researchers need to be part of a Virtual Organisation (list of EGI VOs [1] and how to become a member). The Globus Online cookbook was prepared by the UCST, in consultation with representatives of EGI Operations, storage technology and information system developer groups.
