Easily create a compute cluster on top of a cloud computing infrastructure.


CloudMan is a cloud manager that orchestrates all of the steps required to provision a complete compute cluster environment on a cloud infrastructure; subsequently, it allows one to manage the cluster, all through a web browser. Although CloudMan can be used in any domain and for any purpose that calls for a compute cluster, it is primarily used in the context of Galaxy Cloud and CloudBioLinux and, along with the infrastructure, ensures a complete Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) analysis toolset is instantly available. CloudMan is currently available on the AWS EC2 cloud.


To instantiate a CloudMan cluster, simply visit

Local deployment

For basic testing and some development, CloudMan can be run locally. Start by cloning CloudMan source, installing virtualenv, and adding Python libraries required by CloudMan. Then, run it:

$ cd <project root dir>
$ hg clone
$ virtualenv --no-site-packages .
$ source bin/activate
$ pip install -r cloudman/requirements.txt
$ sh cloudman/ [--reload]

Custom cloud deployment

If you would like to deploy CloudMan and all of its dependencies on a cloud infrastructure where a public image does not already exist, take a look at mi-deployment scripts ( in particular), which enable an easy way to do so.
