The file transfer service Globus Online has selected James Vincent, director of the Bioinformatics Core at the Vermont Genetics Network at the University of Vermont, as its December 2011 “User of the Month.” “James has transferred more than 5TBs of data in less than one month. He has transferred data between several TereGrid/XSEDE resources,” note Globus Online’s Rajkumar Kettimuthu, “and also between his Vermont site and XSEDE resources. He has obtained stellar transfer rates — as high as 1.3 Gbps!” Read more about Jim Vincent’s research and publications and see the announcement online.
