Step 3: Getting your data on and off ECCO

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Once you have an account, you can start moving data to ECCO, and later, you may want to move data onto  XSEDE or other HPC resources. Transfer methods will depend on source and destination, but include

  • GlobusOnline: ECCO is configured as a GlobusOnline node (you might initially see it listed as 'SSG'). This allows for fast transfers between points on the XSEDE network, but also from arbitrary endpoints (see Step 6 for a description on how to use it)
  • SSH/Sftp: the login node ecco.vrdc.cornell.edu is accessible via SSH/SFTP/SCP. A comfortable client for Windows is WinSCP. OS X and Linux have built-in command-line tools (ssh, sftp, scp). OS X users can try Fugu. Linux users wishing to use graphical tools can also consult this page.
  • Since SSH is available, users can also use rsync. Learn how to use rsync.
  • Sneaker net: if you have large amounts of data, and depending on your network location, it might make sense to send us large USB or eSATA compatible hard-drives.

We point out immediately that we provide no backup services, and that very large data requests will need to fund additional storage. Contact us if you want to discuss any of this.
