Hi Nikos,

Is this going to be one server both for running Galaxy (which
needs fairly low resources) and running jobs for Galaxy,
like de novo assemblies (which need high resources)?

i.e. You have one big machine only, no cluster?

For de novo assembly the RAM per core/CPU isn't important,
it is the total RAM on the machine. How much RAM you
need depends on which assembler you use, the organism
(both size and also complexity) and the volume of data.

What you've described should be fine for bacterial assemblies
and smaller eukaryotes - beyond that you'll need to give
more details.
