If the whole files need to be accessed in the runs, then by the time the job
has completed, all the data in the simulation files will still have to have
been transferred. Data Transfer would therefore not be avoided.

The pros and cons to this (and other networked files solutions) compared to
pre-staging the input files are:
* Data transfer is done piecemeal during the run of the program, rather than
  in one go before your program starts. Both methods have their own implications
  on network performance.
* The Windows machines never need to have the whole file on their machine at
  one time.
