By default, all the data is under a single folder, belonging to the
galaxy Linux user account. We use /mnt/galaxy/galaxy-dist for
this. In order that the cluster jobs can access the data, they must
also be able to see this mount.

Galaxy does have support for staging files between file systems,
but the simpler approach of unified storage is recommended.

We're using Galaxy and SGE. You could run Galaxy on the SGE
head node, but in our setup the Galaxy machine is just an SGE
submit node (so it can submit jobs and check on them, i.e.
you can use qsub and qstat from our Galaxy server).
