Summary: The existence of more than 100 public Galaxy servers with service quotas is indicative of the need for an increased availability of compute resources for Galaxy to use. The GalaxyCloudRunner enables a Galaxy server to easily expand its available compute capacity by sending user jobs to cloud resources. User jobs are routed to the acquired resources based on a set of configurable rules and the resources can be dynamically acquired from any of four popular cloud providers (AWS, Azure, GCP or OpenStack) in an automated fashion.
