We know Galaxy support Docker, but it seems I can only run docker containers locally. Condor now has a Docker universe, which can manage docker jobs in a compute node. Is it possible to launch Galaxy's Docker jobs into condor?

Or is there a better way to launch Docker jobs to compute nodes in Galaxy?

Thanks in advance, Mark

Hi Mark,

in the latest development version of Galaxy has support for HTCondor and the Docker-universe. But we still need real world testers :) Have a look at this PR:

Recently the Galaxy team also merged a PR which integrates a Kubernetes job runner, see here:

So you have these two options. Docker Swarm I would not recommend it is currently not secure and please keep in mind this is all in Galaxy dev and will be released with Galaxy 16.07. I would really like to see some testing before so please get in touch with us if you find problems.

In a related new we also have merged HTCondor Integration into the Galaxy-Docker Image here:

So it should be possible to run Galaxy in Docker and submit via HTCondor Docker containers ;)

Ciao, Bjoern
