Summary:Jetstream is part of XSEDE, a "collection of integrated advanced digital resources and services" and is funded by NSF.


  • You need to be eligible for an XSEDE allocation to use Jetstream, which means must be based at a U.S. institution. And although XSEDE is NSF-funded, "projects need not be supported by NSF grants" to receive an allocation.
  • Jetstream enables researchers to launch, use, and shutdown their own Galaxy servers that have been pre-configured similar to the Main Galaxy server. If you want to further customize your launched server you can become an administrator and even access the server from the shell.

User Support


  • Limits are determined by the size of your allocation and the size of the instances you launch.
