Galaxy Main public instance: data and job quotas
October 25, 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 http://usegalaxy.org (http://main.g2.bx.psu.edu).
The Main quotas are:
Data - 250Gb for registered users (with a Galaxy account) - 5Gb for unregistered users
Jobs - 8 concurrent jobs running simultaneously (all users)
For more details please see:
Galaxy Main Wiki http://galaxyproject.org/wiki/Main
Data management: accounting and disk quotas http://galaxyproject.org/wiki/Admin/Disk%20Quotas
Managing Datasets in Galaxy http://galaxyproject.org/wiki/Learn/Managing%20Datasets#Actions
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.
If you find that you require additional resources, please consider the alternative Galaxy options: http://galaxyproject.org/wiki/Big%20Picture/Choices
Thanks for using Galaxy!
