GCC 2017 has ended
The 2017 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2017) is being held in Montpellier, France, 26-30 June.  GCC2017 will include keynotes and accepted talks, poster sessions, demos, birds-of-a-feather meetups, exhibitors, and plenty of networking opportunities. There will also be three days of pre-conference activities, including hackathons and training. If you work in data-intensive biomedical research, there is no better place than GCC2017 to present your work and to learn from others.

The full printed program is also available.

Containerized Galaxy Deployments and Advanced Testing BoF

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

During this buzzword heavy BoF, we hope to gather deployers interested in a broad range of topics from big picture choices (such as DevOps, Containers, and Clouds) to specific technologies (for instance Ansible, Condor, and Kubernetes) and specific Galaxy communities (including docker-galaxy-stable, CloudMan, and GalaxyKickStart). This last year has seen significant sharing and splintering of resources for containerized deployments - we hope this BoF can serve as a venue to coordinate plans for the next year to maximize reuse we can accomplish going forward.

Possible Topics Include:


  • Discuss plans for major Galaxy virtualization projects for the next year - including at least docker-galaxy-stable but hopefully more such CloudMan and GalaxyKickStart.
  • Discuss different options for deploying Galaxy to Kubernetes/Swarm/OpenShift and potentially coordinate reuse across methods.
  • Discuss multi-container deployment options being developed as part of the docker-galaxy-stable project including planned development and testing of complete deployment recipes for Kubernetes, Swarm, and OpenShift.
  • Discuss plans for major Galaxy-related Ansible efforts this year and develop plans to reduce duplication across projects.
  • Discuss our efforts to automate testing of Galaxy deployment artifacts over the last year and how they can be leveraged. Discuss plans for future testing.
