Galaxy on the NSF Jetstream cloud

The Galaxy project is making use of the NSF Jetstream cloud predominantly to support scalable operations of server. Use of this resource is transparent to the user as a set of jobs submitted are automatically routed to Jetstream resources. Which jobs are routed to Jetstream depends on the resource requirements of a tool. Meanwhile, the size of resources available for users jobs is dynamically scaled to accommodate current workloads.

On average jobs from about 1,000 users from are automatically sent to the Jetstream cloud each month, ranging between 5,000 and 7,000 jobs.
