Secure and easy data sharing
Research data delivery network
Transfer to and from any laptop or server across Aotearoa New Zealand and Globus' international network of endpoints. See the list of national data transfer nodes and learn how to configure a personal Globus Connect endpoint.
A national platform for sharing research data
Our growing network of managed endpoints are linked to Globus' global network of institutional and personal endpoints, providing secure, reliable, and fast data transfer within New Zealand and internationally.
New managed endpoints in Aotearoa New Zealand are brought online through collaborative efforts across NeSI, REANNZ, and the IT support teams at the participating institutions.
Across the Tasman, Globus services offered through AARNet (Australia’s Academic and Research Network) continue to expand, bringing on new managed endpoints and integrating Australia’s significant scientific instrument investments into the Globus network.
Who can use the platform?
Any researcher or research institution based in New Zealand can access the National Data Transfer Platform to transfer and share research data using Globus.
If in doubt, please get in touch.
"...it hasn't just sped up a workflow it's actually enabled a new workflow; that is, to routinely shift multiple tens or hundreds of terabytes around the world at the click of a button.”

Building capability through partnerships
Delivering the National Data Transfer Platform is a collaborative effort, involving participation from national network provider REANNZ, international partner Globus, several innovative research institutions across New Zealand, NeSI Collaborators — the University of Auckland, the University of Otago, Manaaki Whenua - Landcare Research, NIWA — and support from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
