Hi Kevin,

The starting place for local install set up is: http://getgalaxy.org

There is a lot of information to consider when first getting started and one solution does not fit all, so we started wiki of known hardware configurations, and are encouraging the development community to add in their solutions/usage:
http://wiki.g2.bx.psu.edu/Admin/CapacityPlanning.

Searching prior mailing list Q/A or asking a new question about how others are doing this is also a great option. Please see the galaxy-...@bx.psu.edu mailing list (and consider subscribing). Posting this question there, with a bit more detail about how many users, the types of jobs/volume, and special considerations such as budget, security, etc. , will likely get you some feedback from others already running instances under similar conditions.

You would also probably be interested in joining the GalaxyCzars group that is just getting started. More information is on our wiki:
http://wiki.g2.bx.psu.edu/Community/GalaxyCzars

Hopefully this information will connect you with the right resources to help set up and maintain your new instance,

Best,

Jen

Galaxy team,

Where can I find information about the requirements for installing and running Galaxy on our campus. In particular, I'd like to know what type of computer or server I should purchase.

Thanks
