Summary (2-4 sentences)

Bioscience, material sciences, physics, and other research fields require several tools to achieve new results, discoveries, and innovations. One of these tools is related to computation power. The Open Science Grid (OSG) provides ways to access the computation power from different sites for several research fields. Besides the processing power, it is essential to access the data for all simulations, calculations, and other kinds of processing. To provide data access to all jobs on the OSG, the Open Science Data Federation (OSDF) exists. This work aims to use tools from OSDF and review the best way to copy a file to a job. One set of tests compares stashcp, xrdcopy, and CVMFS. The quickest way to access the data is, in order, CVMFS, stashcp, and xrdcopy. However, to use CVMFS it is necessary to wait for the synchronization between the /public and CVMFS directory.
