So you want to set up a lab
Here is how I would set up a computational lab, one that could join the worldwide docking.org network.
- DRAFT IN PROGRESS***
Tier 0 - Requirements and assumptions
This page describes setting up a full research lab. We describe the minimum setup, plus options for expansion. The entry level assumes you can spend: $20K on servers and $2K on a workstation. You need someone with system administration experience for 100 hours (3 weeks) for the initial set up, and then 1 day a month for maintenance.
Tier 1 - Physical level
We describe an entry level system that can be easily expanded.
Tier 2 - Operating System level
- Centos 6.3.
- configure network
- Perimeter security.
Set up a database server
Add a new node to the cluster
Add new disk to the cluster
Deploy a workstation
Tier 3 - "Middleware" level
Set up middleware for a computational drug discovery lab.
Set up psql/rdkit from scratch
Tier 4 - Computational Pharmacology Application Software - Server side
Using git and github
Tier 5 - Compuational Pharmacology Application Software - Client side
Tier 6 - Operations
Monthly maintenance tasks.
