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.  With Globus Connect, users can take advantage of this connection speed when making large/cumbersome transfers.

Those who prefer scp, sftp or rsync clients can also benefit from this high-speed connectivity by using these dedicated servers for data transfers:

For Tusker transfers, use:

For Sandhills Transfers, use:




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