Hi Vladimir

It is difficult to give you a good number, as it depends on a lot of factors, like:


- how "active" are your anticipated '50 active user'? more than 1 job/workflow a day or just 1 job/workflow a month?

- do you have to set up a system in order to give the galaxy users access to 'external' data, like fastq files?

 - how much training and what kind of training will they need

 - what kind of tools do you wanna integrate and/or write

- do you have an IT-department which will help you, or do you have to do all the sysadmin stuff for the cluster as well


To start, I would recommend at least two full time positions. This will give you enough manpower to set up the instance and provide training in the initial phase. And later, you will have enough flexibility to integrate new tools, follow the developments in the wider galaxy universe...and eventually give something back to the galaxy community.



Regards, Hans-Rudolf

Hello all,

We (at Tel Aviv University) are considering setting up a Galaxy instance 
(private, but production-geared). The capacity planning pages and surveys are 
great for hardware budgeting, but I want to ask about manpower. We’re looking 
forward to roughly 50 active users, and we’ll need to provide troubleshooting, 
training and integrating and writing new tools. In your experience, what is be 
the scope of a Galaxy admin’s position? Part-time? Full-time? Something else? 
Is more than one person needed to handle everything?

Thank you,
Vladimir Gritsenko
