When Blue Waters comes online this year, scientists will be able to spend more time on actual research, thanks in part to Globus Online, a cloud-based managed file transfer service. The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) selected Globus Online for its ability to move and synchronize files reliably between multiple locations without the need to install complex software.

During this week's GlobusWORLD event at Argonne National Laboratory, we took time out to discuss grid and cloud movements and new developments in web-delivered services that are allowing scientists to shed IT concerns and get back to focusing on research. Read more…
Did you miss out on Supercomputing 2017? Did you attend, but were stuck in meetings the whole time without an opportunity to walk the show floor and see what new announcements were being made? HPCwire's got you covered, we visited some of the hottest booths in the exhibit hall and spoke with their top executives to get the scoop on the latest solutions, partnerships, and product announcements.
From mismatches between compute and storage capabilities to colossal data volumes, data storage presents a number of challenges for scientific research. And as silos pop up and challenges expand, the pace of research often suffers.
As genomic data becomes ubiquitous, infrastructure bottlenecks for life sciences organizations are narrowing. But speedy analysis and real-time decision making don't have to remain out of reach: modern end-to-end systems are emerging as flexible solutions for a competitive edge.
