Dear all,

We are in the middle of setting up a local Galaxy instance on CentOS,
but we have a problem with disk space.  In particular, we do not have
a single large disk partition but, instead, many medium sized ext4
partitions.  Thus, we were wondering if it would be possible for
Galaxy to use multiple disk partitions instead of a single one for
data and intermediate files.

Ideally, it would be great if we could allocate users to various
groups, which in turn are allocated separate disk partitions.

Less ideal, but still something we could work with, is to ask users to
copy/move to/from the other partitions while one remains the "working
one" for Galaxy.

Another idea which I think wouldn't work since it would interfere with
Galaxy is to move files (i.e., via a cron job) to another partition
when a job is complete and then add a symbolic link to it from the
"working" partition.

Are there any suggestions on how I can get around this?  Or are we
stuck with either a single partition or somehow reformatting it and
merging the partitions (using an xfs file system, etc.)

Thank you!
