How TIaaS Works

We have several "pools" of resources attached to that run user jobs. For trainings we attach a new pool of resources that is specially labelled for that training. When normal users run tools on our server, these jobs are instructed to avoid the training pools by default.

When users join a training, using a special URL we provide you, they then are placed in a special training group. Their jobs will then preferentially run the jobs on a training machine, and, in the event there is no more capacity, they will run on the main queue. If a spot on the training specific resources opens up first, they will run there rather than continuing to wait in the main queue.


We have significant capacity and have dedicated some of this to providing training using our service. Anyone providing training on using Galaxy is eligible to request the use of this service.
