Tutorialdoi: 10.7490/f1000research.1112907.1

This will be a technical workshop covering the process of creating a Galaxy on the Cloud platform, for a range of clouds. We will look at how to use Galaxy Ansible automation playbooks to build all the components required to run Galaxy on a cloud using CloudMan. At the end of this workshop, you will know how to create a custom version Galaxy on any supported cloud (AWSOpenStack) and allow others to then easily and independently launch those. Specifically, it will cover the process of creating the machine image, galaxy and indices file systems as well as installing Cloud Launch.


  • Knowledge and comfort with the Unix/Linux command line interface and a text editor. If you don't know what cd, mv, rm, mkdir, chmod, grep and so on can do then you will struggle in this workshop.
  • Familiarity with the Galaxy on the Cloud concepts.
