Alternatives to maintaining GCG pkg. locally?

The Cornell Biotechnology Program currently maintains the GCG package and
accompanying databases as the core of its biotechnology computing
facility.  Because this facility is operating at a loss, there is a very
real possibility that it will cease to exist.  What are the alternatives
for researchers who want the functions provided by GCG but don't have
access to a local site?  Are such services available through the network,
either freely or on a fee per use basis?  I am aware that BLAST searches
are provided by the NCBI server, and that sequence records can be
retrieved from both NCBI and EMBL, but what about the rest?  What do
people do at institutions that don't have the GCG package?
