Tusker, Crane and Sandhills each have a dedicated transfer server with 10 Gb/s connectivity (Sandhills currently limited to 1 Gb/s) that allows for faster data transfers than the login nodes.

Because the transfer servers are login-disabled, third-party transfers between
sandhills-xfer must be done via Globus Connect.
