Data transfer

CSCS provides a data transfer service to get your files from/to CSCS file systems (External Transfer) and a SLURM queue xfer available on Piz Daint to transfer files from/to internal CSCS file systems (Internal Transfer).

The service is implemented using GridFTP with SSH authentication: please have a look at the GridFTP documentation on the Globus web site. All CSCS users are eligible to use GridFTP to transfer files, using the GridFTP endpoint ssh

The SLURM queue xfer can submit jobs directly on the nodes of the cluster supporting data transfer. Direct access via ssh to the nodes of this cluster is not allowed.
