Please see further articles in the Data Transfer category for details on managing your data transfers.

The standard transfer servers provide a basic and functional service for moving small amounts of data over relatively short distances. However, the high-performance data transfer servers shown above are also available for those with particular requirements. Users with login accounts can apply for access to use these servers.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU USE THE DEDICATED TRANSFER SERVERS AND NOT SCIENTIFIC ANALYSIS SERVERS FOR ANY SIGNIFICANT DATA TRANSFERS. TRANSFER SERVERS HAVE BEEN CONFIGURED TO ACHIEVE THE BEST TRANSFER RATES AND WILL PERFORM SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER THAN OTHER SERVERS ON JASMIN, WHILE MAINTAINING PERFORMANCE OF ANALYSIS SERVERS FOR OTHER USERS.
