Enterprise Data Transfer Node

CORE.SAMDesigned for Campus Research Computing

Pitt’s Enterprise DTN provides data transfer service using Globus Connect Server and Globus Online. Globus is used by researchers around the world to move data between endpoints. The Enterprise DTN leverages Globus software to provide faculty and researchers a convenient and effective way to transfer data files to and from Pitt high-performance computing (HPC) resources.

The Enterprise DTN provides a number of important benefits:

  • Rapid creation of Globus endpoints
  • Works seamlessly with the University’s InCommon federated identification architecture, using your University Computing Account credentials to authenticate and giving non-Pitt collaborators the flexibility to use their own institutions' login credentials
  • Easier data sharing with other institutions by integrating two powerful file transfer tools: Globus Connect Server and Globus Online
  • Dedicated hardware for transferring data
  • Leverages the University’s Science DMZ, which is built to provide high-speed bandwidth to the University’s high-performance computing resources at the University Data Center
