Galaxy Main public instance: data and job quotas

October 25th 2011

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 (

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.
