Ok, got it. Unfortunately this isn't really possible at this time, at least not without a lot of hacking and dealing with data staging issues and delays (in downloading data from S3 to local cluster to work, uploading results back to galaxy server, etc.).
Galaxy, with the exception of the LWR - http://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/Config/LWR, relies on a shared filesystem between the galaxy instance and workers. I'd really recommend colocating Galaxy with the cluster, at least for now. We do want to build out the ability to use EC2 as an expansion to local clusters, but I imagine it working the other way around -- that is, you have a local instance that uses S3 as permanent storage and spin up extra nodes in EC2 to handle excess load as necessary. -Dannon On Tue, May 28, 2013 at 1:14 PM, Nikolay N. <nikola...@gmail.com> wrote: > Hi Dannon, > > Yes, this is what I was thinking about.
