I know this is a common question but I don't find a very specific answer to my question in the forum. I hope somebody could help.
I successfully installed local instance galaxy in our server. We have huge data sets (about ~100GB each) that we need to process. Obviously I was not able to upload this into galaxy webserver which is limited to just 2GB. It recommends me to upload via a FTP server. My question is, can't I just keep my data in my own server(where galaxy is also installed) and process right there? I dont see why I need to use FTP to upload and then process the data. Could somebody guide me on this? Maybe I didn't understand the purpose of local instance?
Thanks much in advance, B
