In this paper, the authors addresses the issues associated with providing data offloading service to HPC centers. HPC centers are high performance computing centers that use parallel processing for running advanced applications more reliably and efficiently. The main concept of this paper is the offloading of data from a HPC center to the destination site in decentralized mode. This paper uses the decentralization concept where it is possible for the end user to retrieve the data even when the center logs out. This is possible by moving the data from the center to the scratch space.
