A library for supporting cloud bursting in Galaxy.

Project description

[![Documentation Status](](

GalaxyCloudRunner enables bursting of user jobs to remote compute resources for the [Galaxy application]( It provides a dynamic job runner that can be plugged into Galaxy.

## Overview

GalaxyCloudRunner enables bursting of user jobs to remote compute resources for the [Galaxy application]( It provides several dynamic job rules that can be plugged into Galaxy, enabling Galaxy to submit jobs to remote cloud nodes.

## How it works

The GalaxyCloudRunner provides a library of rules that can be plugged into Galaxy through job_conf.xml. Once configured, you can get your jobs to be automatically routed to remote Pulsar nodes running on the cloud. The GalaxyCloudRunner will discover what Pulsar nodes are available by querying the [CloudLaunch]( API. Adding a new node is a simple matter of visiting the [CloudLaunch]( site and launching a new Pulsar node on your desired cloud.

## Getting Started

Getting started with the GalaxyCloudRunner is a simple process.

  1. First, install galaxycloudrunner into your Galaxy’s virtual environment.
  2. Add a job rule to Galaxy which will determine the Pulsar node to route to.
  3. Configure your job_conf.xml to use this rule.
  4. Launch as many Pulsar nodes as you need through [CloudLaunch](
  5. Submit your jobs as usual.
