A national platform for sharing research data

Map showing National Data Transfer endpoints live as of July 2023.

Aotearoa New Zealand's National Data Transfer Platform is delivered through a partnership between NeSI, REANNZ, Globus, and research institutions across the country.  

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.
