We'll be joining the European Globus Community Forum in Helsinki, which is co-located with the European Grid Infrastructure Community Forum 2014.

The EGCF annual event provides a unique opportunity for European Globus users to introduce and discuss their work, challenges, solutions, and best practices within a community atmosphere. The event also gives participants the chance to provide feedback on Globus technologies, as well as present any Globus requirements they may have for their research.

Vas Vasiliadis will be presenting updates on Globus.

GlobusWorld 2014 took place in Chicago last week and it was a great success, drawing more than 120 HPC computing experts and scientists to Argonne National Lab for the three-day event. Attendees participated in tutorials illuminating the full range of Globus capabilities, learned how different campuses are thriving with Provider Plans and Globus Plus, and heard about cutting-edge genomic research supported by Globus Genomics.

Two weeks after the discovery of the Heartbleed bug we’re still actively monitoring the situation and fixing systems that might be at risk. After updating software and certificates, we believe that our systems are no longer vulnerable to Heartbleed. We maintain a detailed list of the corrective actions we've taken in our support forum.

Chicago, Illinois - April 16, 2014 - The explosion of data across disciplines has opened up vast new possibilities for scientific discovery. But many researchers do not yet have access to the advanced infrastructure needed to work with Big Data and realize its full potential.

By now, almost every system administrator on the planet is aware of the OpenSSL vulnerability (also known as the Heartbleed bug). Since its announcement we've been hard at work reviewing all Globus services and software components to figure out which of them, if any, are vulnerable.

The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, has implemented a new feature of the Globus software that will allow researchers using the Center’s computational and storage resources to easily and securely access and share large data sets with colleagues. SDSC is the first supercomputer center in the National Science Foundation’s XSEDE (eXtreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment) program to offer the new and unique Globus sharing service.

In the stock markets, the so-called "January Effect" is the increase in stock prices during the month of January that commentators attribute to investors buying stocks after having sold them during the previous December (usually for tax reasons). Unlike most January's, last month the markets experienced a steep drop—the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 5.3% from its 2013 year-end level. But I'm happy to say that the January Effect is alive and well at Globus!
