Is there a quantifiable difference in data uploads, speed of processing, general
availability after the connection was/is established to Pittsburgh?
If we loaded data to a common directory on an XSEDE resource, would our students be able
to fetch this data in a more timely manner to their galaxy accounts then from desktops
etc... For us it would be easy to populate a common directory once then our users could
fetch/wget etc... from there, or if possible could such directory be directly visible to
our set of galaxy users? (this is what we do locally) - but one would need admin priv for
that on the main instance.
Or would you just do this with one galaxy user sharing out the files for the rest of a
group working together?
