Getting Started with Galaxy on the Cloud

This getting started is for non-technical users who are interested in creating their own Galaxy on the Cloud. By following this getting started, you’ll learn fundamental process of starting your own cluster with Galaxy. It takes about 10 minutes to complete.

Step 0: Get your cloud credentials

Before you can start using cloud resources, you need to get your API access credentials for the given cloud. This step needs to be done only once.

0.1 For the case of Amazon, you need to register here.

0.2 Once your account has been approved by Amazon (note that this may take up to one business day), log into AWS Management Console (https://console.aws.amazon.com/console) and create the API access credentials.

0.3 Create IAM user by clicking on ServicesIAMUsersCreate New Users. Give the user a name (e.g., galaxy_cloudman) and click Create. Once created, make a note of and download the API access credentials. Keep these credentials safe because they are all that is required to access your cloud account.

0.4 Attach permissions to the created IAM user by selecting the newly created user, clicking on Permissions in the user properties pane followed by a click on Attach User Policy button. Select the AdministratorAccess policy and Attach it.

Step 1: Start your cluster

In this step, we will create a new cluster by launching a virtual server in the cloud.

1.1 Head to the Cloud Launch application at launch.usegalaxy.org/launch and fill the form with the required information. Here, use the credentials created in the previous step. We can also choose the type of cluster to configure here - see this page for a description of the available options.

1.2 Download the ssh key from the resulting page. This key allows you to ssh into the instance via the command prompt without a password. Note that this key is available for download only the very first time you use a given cloud account. If you have missed to download the key, delete the key from within the cloud's console (by default, called cloudman_keypair) and it will be automatically recreated the next time you start a cluster.

1.3 Wait for the cluster to start - it will take a couple of minutes. Once it has started, a link to the CloudMan console will be shown.

Step 2: Access Galaxy (and other services)

After the cluster has started, it will take a few more minutes for all the applications to start. A popup message window will be shown when the cluster is ready for use. At that point, click Access Galaxy and start using Galaxy. You will probably want to register a new account first - after all, this is your own cluster.
