I'm wondering if anyone has had experience running Galaxy using the Amazon
"spot" EC2 instances? These instances are charged based on a bid placed by
the user, and only run when the bid exceeds exceeds the current spot price.
In other words, you pay a significantly reduced rate for cloud capacity but
it runs intermittently. This is OK for certain applications but I'm not
sure how that will work for Galaxy. Specifically, I'm interested in using
Galaxy for Tophat analysis of RNA seq datasets. Any insight that anyone has
will be helpful. Thanks!
