Globus is a secure and reliable research data management service. Using Globus, you can quickly transfer data between your local computer, Sockeye, Chinook, and many research computing endpoints worldwide.
Globus offers two primary user interfaces, the Globus web interface (file manager) and the Globus Command Line Interface (CLI). The web interface provides a clickable, graphical interface for managing files. The CLI provides an interface to Globus services from the shell, and is suitable for both interactive and simple scripting use cases.

Do I Need Globus Plus?
Note that Globus Plus is not needed for all Globus users. If, for example, you want to share content on a server by using GCS, Globus Plus is not needed as it only works with GCP, and GCS would better suit your needs. You should only consider Globus Plus if the following use-cases are applicable to you:
- You would like to transfer files between two GCP endpoints.
- You would like to share files (i.e. Guest Collections) from GCP endpoints with research collaborators.
You may request Globus Plus by applying to join the University of British Columbia Globus Plus group. Join requests are reviewed by the ARC team before being approved. You may be contacted for additional details or to clarify your request.
