AbstractGridFTP is a high-performance, secure, reliable data transfer protocol optimized for high-bandwidth wide-area networks. It is based on the Internet FTP protocol, and it defines extensions for high-performance operation and security. The Globus implementation of GridFTP provides a software suite optimized for the gamut of data access issues — from bulk file transfer to the details of getting data out of complex storage systems within sites. We summarize some recent developments in Globus GridFTP.
