Galaxy Main public instance: data and job quotas

### Dear Galaxy User

Thank you very much for using our free and open public resource. Galaxy has become extremely popular and as a result many people rely on it daily for their analysis needs. Previously our service had no restrictions on usage, which is not sustainable in the long term. *To continue providing our open service in a fair manner*, we are now implementing quotas at the public Galaxy Main instance http://usegalaxy.org (http://main.g2.bx.psu.edu).

Thanks for using Galaxy!

The details, including administrative:

Quotas on Main
Maximum total user data on server: 250GB for registered users
5GB for unregistered users
Maximum concurrent jobs: 8 or less for registered/unregistered users

For those users with current account disk usage over the quota limit, we will be implementing a step-down program over the next several weeks. Details for that program will be emailed to those users directly.
