  • Looking for a user-oriented, Multi-Cloud & POSIX file-copy tool?  Motuz relies on an on-prem ‘gateway’ which has access to on-prem storage … as well as keys to Cloud storage (AWS, GCP, Azure).  Gives the user a two-paned (left pane & right pane) GUI for exploring two storage targets and copying files / folders between them.  You drag & drop … this submits asynchronous jobs to the gateway … which reports progress on them.  https://github.com/FredHutch/motuz  & https://youtu.be/cyk8TNSwCA0
