Webinar: Galaxy—Powering Science from the Desktop to Global Cyberinfrastructure
June 24, 2020
Presented by Nate Coraor, System Administrator, Penn State University, Galaxy Project Team Member
Part four of a series of webinars providing an introduction to a variety of gateway platforms that can be used for building new gateways.
In addition to being open source software, Galaxy is a cloud service available for free to researchers worldwide at usegalaxy.org. From its humble beginnings on a server in a closet at Penn State to a collection of physical and virtual hosts at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC), the free public site offers researchers worldwide free storage and dedicated compute, as well as scalable compute time on the NSF-funded Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE). As a community-focused and -driven software project, Galaxy is also run by academic, research, and commercial institutions for public and private purposes, on premises and in the cloud. This talk highlights some of the technologies and development projects that have made this diversity of deployments possible.
