The tl;dr short story - I've come across about $5,000 I can use to
build a machine, and this money has to be spent by Friday. I'd like
some help spec'ing out a machine that can be used as a small-scale
production Galaxy server for internal use by a handful of folks.
Would anyone be willing to talk with me tomorrow morning, Thursday May
3, and tell me about your experience setting up a Galaxy installation
on a scale like this? With about $5k to spend, what kind of hardware
should I prioritize? I'd also like to get a sense of how much admin
time is required to keep things running smoothly, updated, backed up,
I've had a difficult time getting ITS to help me get Galaxy running on
the university's cluster. This will hopefully be a proof of principal
that people here want this - hopefully I can get enough people here
using this small-scale installation that the university ITS realizes
the demand and has more motivation to get things working on the
