Researchers who have an Armis2 High-Performance Computing account can now move data to and from other Protected Health Information (PHI)-approved systems using Globus File Transfer. (The endpoint is umich#armis2.)
To learn more about your responsibility and approved services, visit the Sensitive Data Guide and the Protected Health Information (PHI) webpage on the Safe Computing Website. Send an email to ARC at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started using Globus with PHI on your own system (this is not needed for researchers using ARC services including Armis2, and Data Den and Turbo with Sensitive Data).
“With the addition of Globus on Armis2, researchers using ITS ARC services can use the same Globus tools and processes to securely and reliably move their data on all ARC systems and across the university and beyond,” said Matt Britt, ARC HPC systems manager.
Globus allows the transfer and collaborative access of data between different storage systems, lab computers, and personal desktops and laptops. Globus enables researchers to use a web browser to submit transfer and data synchronization requests between destinations.
As a robust, cloud-based, file transfer service, Globus is designed to securely move your data, ranging from megabytes to petabytes. ARC is a Globus Subscription Provider for the U-M community, which allows U-M resources to serve as endpoints or collections for file transfers.
“There are many interesting research collaborations happening at U-M, as well as nationally and internationally. Globus can facilitate all of those interactions securely,” said Brock Palen, ARC director. “Globus is the go-to tool we recommend for data transfer.”
