GalaxyCloudRunner: job bursting for Galaxy

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 compute nodes.

How it works

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