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

Veritas Genetics maintains a public installation of Arvados for evaluation and trial use, the Arvados Playground. A Google account is required to log in.

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 for details.


Complete documentation, including a User Guide, Installation documentation and API documentation is available at

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


The #arvados IRC (Internet Relay Chat) channel at the Open and Free Technology Community ( is available for live discussion and support. You can use a traditional IRC client or join OFTC over the web.

The Arvados user mailing list is a forum for general discussion, questions, and news about Arvados development. The Arvados developer mailing list is a forum for more technical discussion, intended for developers and contributors to Arvados.
