Transfer API

The Transfer API provides a REST-style interface to the Globus reliable file transfer service. The API can be used to monitor the progress of file transfers, manage file transfer endpoints, list remote directories, and submit new transfer and delete tasks.

Resource Providers

Globus allows you, as a resource provider, to easily offer reliable, secure, high-performance research data management capabilities to your users and their collaborators, directly from your own storage infrastructure.


The open source Globus Toolkit is a fundamental enabling technology for the "Grid," allowing users to access high-performance computing resources securely across corporate, institutional, and geographic boundaries without sacrificing local autonomy.
