Data Transfer: high-performance data transfer access

This article explains about access to high-performance data transfer services. It covers:

  • Applying for the additional "hpxfer" access role
  • Additional information which may be required

Applying for access

Some data transfer services are hosted in the  JASMIN Data Transfer Zone for increased performance. However, to maintain security in this zone, access is controlled via an additional access group "hpxfer". If you have a login account already, you can apply here for this additional role:

Apply for hpxfer access

Additional information required

If you will be connecting from your home institution directly via ssh or gridftp to one of the servers in the JASMIN Data Transfer Zone, the specific IP address of your machine will need to be added to a whitelist. Please supply this by email to the helpdesk at  support@ceda.ac.uk.

However, this should not be necessary if you are accessing the server from a remote server which is already whitelisted, for example data transfers servers at RDF. Similarly, if you are using Globus Online, relevant IP addresses have already been whitelisted.
