Jetstream is a new cloud computing resource funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). As a fully configurable cloud resource, Jetstream adds significantly to the NSF-funded resources available to the Galaxy user community. Jetstream has a total computing capability of 0.5 petaflops, and supports interactive users. Jetstream hosts persistent Science Gateways (specifically, Galaxy) and Virtual Machines (VMs) useable by individual researchers within the cloud environment. Here, we explain how to access Galaxy on Jetstream and how to get an allocation on Jetstream through the NSF-mandated XSEDE allocation process.
Galaxy users will have the option of preserving their workflow through persistent storage of VMs. Persistent VM storage for use on Jetstream can be stored in the Indiana University persistent digital repository, IUScholarWorks (scholarworks.iu.edu) and obtain a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) that is associated with the stored VM. Overall, we anticipate that Jetstream will improve Galaxy usability by reducing job wait times and increasing job throughput.
