Description: Compute Canada portal for intuitive, fast, secure and reliable data transfer.
SHARCNET Package information: see Globus software page in web portal
Full list of SHARCNET supported software


The Compute Canada Globus instance is an intuitive portal that provides fast, secure and reliable data transfers with the goal of making big data portable. Most Compute Canada storage systems are defined as endpoints for transfers and user machines can be added as endpoints. Most SHARCNET file systems can be found via the computcanada#sharcnet-dtn1 endpoint. The Compute Canada User Documentation can be found here and more general information can be found at the Globus site here.

Rather than using this utility from a SHARCNET system, Globus is accessed via its Compute Canada Portal here.

Information specific to accessing SHARCNET endpoints is described in the Wiki linked in the Documentation section below.
