The EuroScienceGateway Project is streamlining the way that users Bring their Own Compute (BYOC) to Galaxy. This post covers a specific case in which a user has access to computing resources in the EGI Federated Cloud.
The video above assumes the following:
- You have an EGI Check-in Account with access to a Virtual Organisation (VO) with enough resources to deploy a virtual cluster of virtual machines with HTCondor. In this example the VO we are using is vo.usegalaxy.eu.
- You have previously uploaded the Virtual Galaxy Compute Node image to the cloud. In the video above we are using vggp-v60-j340.The goal here is to build on top of the great work done by the UseGalaxy.eu team to build the VGCN virtual machine images with everything that is needed.
This is all work in progress and we would welcome your feedback to improve it!
