Hi Richard, Please see some comments below. Currently, Galaxy Cloud allows a cluster to be composed of multiple types of instances but the selection of which tool runs on which instance is handled by the job manager (i.e., SGE) and thus a specific job cannot be targeted at a specific instance type; we should eventually provide support for this type of functionality. In the mean time, a cluster can be composed of the type of instance that match the current workload type and then the type of instances can be changed as the type of workload changes. Also, Amazon has so-called "cluster" instances, and now GPU cluster Because MPI-type jobs are the only true beneficiaries of the cluster instances, but only a handful of bioinformatics software are actually implemented using MPI and because those instances require a different AMI, we do not currently have support for that type of instances - maybe down the line. Nonetheless, in the coming new version Galaxy Cloud (currently being tested), the application will be able to automatically scale the size of the cluster based on the current workload. Thanks for your interest, Enis
