In your defense: I couldn't find it back myself at first; it's not always easy 
to find what you are looking for on the wiki...

Well, the upload shouldn't be a problem at all, but making sure your server(s) 
don't run out of disk space in no time can be quite problematic with NGS data 
:o... Galaxy stores all data - inputs, intermediate files and final results - 
by default. Files will only vanish if users actively delete them (and the admin 
runs the clean up scripts): This is very convenient for the end-users :), but 
it may be a headache for the sys admin...

Cheers,

Pi
