Hello everyone! This is my very first post here.
I am wondering if someone could help me with this: I want to install my own Galaxy, but I find it a bit tedious to install it in my computer due to the lack of tools and (mostly) because I should keep them and Galaxy itself up to date by myself. I am a Biologist, not a (bio)informatitian, programmer, etc., so that could be a bit out of my range. Therefore, I thought about using AWS for installing Galaxy on the cloud, since it will have all the tools already installed and keep itself updated.
My problem and reason for this post is that I do not know anything about the charging policies. I have read the list of costs already, but I was wondering: if I barely use it, or if I use it for learning purposes (which is what I do for now), will this be enough for them to charge me? Will it be too expensive? The reason to install it is because sometimes I learn in the library, sometimes at home, or sometimes I need to discuss with friends, so using the advantage of cloud storing, I can just open my work in different places. I might start working with private information soon, so the public server may not be the best option, since the information will be provided by a colleague and his research group and I would not like to compromise it.
So to make my question clear, I would like to know about AWS:
- If I install Galaxy, will there be any charges just by storing the installation?
- If I work with Galaxy, at very basic levels, with learning purposes, will there be any charges?
- I have an Amazon Prime account. Will it make any difference? Thank you guys for your time and look forward to reading your answers!
