Yan, sorry, I lost track of this email. For future reference, try to keep the list cc'd instead of just replying to individuals, that way 1) we can track the status of requests in our ticketing system without losing track, and 2) other people can pitch in and help answer.
1&2) Yes, we provide galaxy for free at those addresses. 3) Amazon is not free, but there are some tools that are very resource intensive, which we don't host on our public servers, but are included on the cloud install. 4) Please see getgalaxy.org for full documentation, but the distribution is available on bitbucket, https://bitbucket.org/galaxy/galaxy-dist/ 5) I'm not sure what you're asking here. The hardware is provided by amazon, and various options are available depending on what your needs are and what you want to pay. For example, if you wanted to do large alignments, you would choose an instance with lots of memory available. See their pricing page which I linked you for more details. Thanks!
