CCR users are often faced with the difficult prospect of transferring large amounts of data to CCR for processing and back to their lab or office for archival and backup purposes.  We are now testing a new transfer server that will allow users the ability to quickly transfer data using GlobusFTP as well as copy data to UBBox (UB's cloud storage)

The name of the data transfer server is:

NOTE: Login to this server now requires the use of SSH keys.  See this article for details on how to set this up

Option 1: SSH/SFTP

You can login and transfer files using SSH just as we detail in this article

Option 2: GridFTP

You can also using GridFTP for transferring files.  This is recommended if you have especially large files or a large amount of files.  Details for using GridFTP can be found in this article

Option 3: UBBox

Directions for using UBBox to transfer files to/from can be found in this article


The data transfer server is not to be used for compiling code or submitting jobs to the cluster.  If you have modules sourced in your login files, you will get an error message when you login as modules are not supported on the data transfer server.
