The old and the new for your users • Host endpoints -> Mapped collections – Need local account to access data • Shared endpoints -> Guest collections – No local account needed for data access, permissions set in Globus • Find host endpoint to create shared endpoint -> Find storage gateway to created guest collections • GridFTP for data access -> GridFTP or HTTPS for data access
  7. 7. As Douglas Adams would say…
  8. 8. Version 5 Milestones v5.0: Google Drive v5.1: POSIX guest collections, HTTPS v5.2: High assurance (e.g. HIPAA) v5.N: includes all version 4.0 features v5.3: … Multi DTN support, other storage types, custom identity providers … Other features v5.1: POSIX guest collections, HTTPS

  13. 13. What’s different from V4 • Globus ID is not needed • Port 443 rather than 2811 used for GridFTP control channel • Endpoint created using endpoint client identity – clientid@clients.auth.globus.org • Each collection is assigned a DNS name in the glob.us namespace – E.g. 988c.8540.dn.glob.us • Certificates are obtained from Let’s Encrypt • Need to create storage gateway(s) for data access
  14. 14. We now have • An endpoint – GCSv5.1 Demo Endpoint – Server configuration, network use parameters, etc. can be managed here
  15. 15. We now have • A storage gateway – GCSv5.1 Data Store – Policy on who can create collections, restricted paths etc can be managed here • An endpoint – GCSv5.1 Demo Endpoint – Server configuration, network use parameters, etc. can be managed here
