The Netherlands needs a Public Galaxy Server. There are to understaffed servers at this moment. We aim to overcome this problem by merging them.

Main discussion topics during this Focus meeting will be: Who can help to maintain the server and  who will have/take/share the following roles:

  • Help desk answering mails
  • Maintaining linux and database
  • Maintaining Galaxy
  • Monitoring the application (nagios/zabbix), writing tests
  • Following Galaxy developments
  • Installing different tool sets
  • Maintaining a VM clone of the whole system
  • Planning for trainings
  • Actually doing trainings
  • Contacting heavy users about how we can help them do their work elsewhere

The meeting is open, but we require participants to give us a motivation why they should participate. Participants are expected to be able to help with the server in the future.
