Plug Wasabi into your existing storage ecosystem with the Globus connector
Fast, reliable data movement and management are more important than ever, as organizations struggle to ensure their infrastructure can keep pace with the demands of the exascale era. Collaboration on ever-increasing datasets requires tools that are engineered for high-performance, yet easy for researchers and scientists to use.
Globus and Wasabi help organizations meet the demands of a data-centric research environment. Wasabi is validated for use with the Globus S3 storage connector, so users can connect their Wasabi hot cloud storage to their existing Globus storage ecosystem. The Globus connector lets users easily manage files and share them between Wasabi and other storage endpoints using the familiar Globus UI. As a result, researchers can harness even the largest files with ease to facilitate collaboration and discovery.
Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage Delivers Breakthrough Economics and Performance
Wasabi was specifically conceived to make cloud storage a commonplace utility like electricity. Unlike legacy cloud storage services with confusing storage tiers and complex pricing schemes, Wasabi hot cloud storage is extremely easy to understand and incredibly economical to scale. One product, with predictable and straightforward pricing, supports every cloud storage application running the S3 API, which has become the de facto standard for storage apps.
Wasabi is 80% cheaper than Amazon S3, with no egress fees or API charges. A highly parallelized system architecture delivers breakthrough performance, so you can rapidly move data in and out of the cloud at no additional cost.
Globus Streamlines Data Sharing and Collaboration
Globus is a non-profit service for secure, reliable research data management. With Globus, users can move and share data via a single interface – whether files live on a supercomputer, lab cluster, tape archive, public cloud or your laptop, users can manage this data from anywhere, using their existing identities, via just a web browser.
With Globus, storage systems such as Wasabi hot cloud storage become endpoints that users can access via their accounts on that system. Globus supports all POSIX-compliant file systems — but the storage landscape increasingly includes cloud object stores, tape archives, and other proprietary systems. To facilitate data management across this diverse ecosystem, Globus offers premium connectors for a range of systems including Amazon S3 and compatible, validated cloud storage services like Wasabi.
Globus goes beyond file transfer, offering the comprehensive capabilities that researchers need to effectively work with data:
- File sharing
- Support for protected data (e.g. data regulated HIPAA)
- Access to premium connectors for on-premises and cloud systems (see complete list of premium connectors here)
- HTTPS support
- Endpoint management and reporting
- Expert support
