Globus offers a broad suite of research data management cappabilities to the research community as web-accessible services. The initial service, launched in 2010, focused on reliable, high-performance, secure data transfer; since thattime, Globus capabilities have been progressively enhancedin response to user demand. In 2015, secure data sharing and publication services were introduced. Other recent enhancements include support for secure HTTP data access, new storage system types (e.g., Amazon S3, HDFS, Ceph), endpoint search, and administrator management. A powerful new authentication and authorization platform service,Globus Auth, addresses identity, credential, and delegation management needs encountered in research environments.New REST APIs allow external and third-party services to leverage Globus data management, authentication, and authorization capabilities as a platform, for example when building research data portals. We describe these and other recent enhancements to Globus, review adoption trends (to date, 38,000 registered users have operated on more than 150PB and 25B les), and present future plans.
