Training Infrastructure as a Service is proud to provide Training Infrastructure as a Service (TIaaS) for the Galaxy training community. You provide the training, we provide the infrastructure at no cost.

Why TIaaS?

  • Private queue where only your training’s jobs will run
  • Free
  • No Galaxy Maintenance
  • No Galaxy Administration

How TIaaS Works

We have several “pools” of VMs attached to that run user jobs. For trainings we attach a new pool of VMs 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 a training VM 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.

Application Process

  1. Fill out the request form and we will get in touch with you

  2. Together with you, we will determine how many VMs are needed for your training to run smoothly
  3. We will setup the private queue and give you a URL your users will access to join the training.
