Abstract

GridFTP is a high-performance, secure, reliable data transfer protocol optimized for high-bandwidth wide-area networks. It is based on the Internet FTP protocol, and it defines extensions for high-performance operation and security. The Globus implementation of GridFTP provides a software suite optimized for the gamut of data access issues—from bulk file transfer to the details of getting data out of complex storage systems within sites. We summarize some recent developments in Globus GridFTP.
