Thanks Bruce for the reply! You read my mind on the two questions asked. Yes, I meant a service that can handle the transfer of large files to compute nodes or a grid after jobs are submitted?
Because my idea of a future gateway (FG) is that it acts as a middleman between a science gateway and the compute nodes where the actual execution of jobs are done. Passing large data files through a middle man might require an extra step of work to be done and will take more time to complete a job.
Finally, is it right to house an FG in the same facility as where the science gateway and the compute nodes are?
