I would recommend to google for the "ngs-fablab" - there are two posters
and a talk online from the GCCs 2014 and 2015, respectively.
I admit, it may look like self-advertising :). But in fact we set up a
local instance at the medical faculty in Munich (LMU) which is quite
similar to yours in terms of pre-conditions: we (have to) deal with SLES
11, do virtualization (although via vSphere, SLES just for the guests) and
intended to go modular, step by step, including cluster usage. As we had
to rely on our own hardware exclusively and clean system setups where
necessary repetively, we created a setup framework that configures servers
remotely for being Galaxy host, fileserver, cluster head/node or arbitrary
combinations. You just need a blank SLES (we tested also other UNIXes like
Ubuntu and CentOS) and SSH enabled. As SLES is hopelessly outdated
regarding software packages, everything is compiled from source. The
framework's technical base is Ansible, which has become quite well known
also in other parts of the Galaxy community (initially introduced by the
If you like to contact us feel free - we are curious for others in the
medical field :).
