Dear CloudMan Galaxy users,
What is the general best practices for maintaining and backing up Galaxy AWS instances and ensuring a smooth recovery in cases of crashes. I was thinking of implementing nightly images of the instance, de-registering old one after some time, but I would really love to hear about general practice.
We have deployed a small CloudMan cluster and are currently evaluating whether we will go with an AWS instance instead of a local server for our institute (25 labs, ~250 researchers, less then 10% potential users).
Going local would ensure that everything is backed up by our IT team, I am less sure what are the potential problems that an AWS instance is facing and what practices are out there.
