README.md

Arvados is a free software distributed computing platform for bioinformatics, data science, and high throughput analysis of massive data sets. Arvados supports a variety of cloud, cluster and HPC environments.

Arvados consists of:

  • Keep: a petabyte-scale content-addressed distributed storage system for managing and storing collections of files, accessible via HTTP and FUSE mount.

  • Crunch: a Docker-based cluster and HPC workflow engine designed providing strong versioning, reproducibilty, and provenance of computations.

  • Related services and components including a web workbench for managing files and compute jobs, REST APIs, SDKs, and other tools.

Quick start

To try out Arvados on your local workstation, you can use Arvbox, which provides Arvados components pre-installed in a Docker container (requires Docker 1.9+). After cloning the Arvados git repository:

$ cd arvados/tools/arvbox/bin
$ ./arvbox start localdemo

In this mode you will only be able to connect to Arvbox from the same host. To configure Arvbox to be accessible over a network and for other options see http://doc.arvados.org/install/arvbox.html for details.

Documentation

Complete documentation, including a User Guide, Installation documentation and API documentation is available at http://doc.arvados.org/

If you wish to build the Arvados documentation from a local git clone, see doc/README.textile for instructions.
