WHY RESEARCHERS LOVE RONIN

With tons of useful features wrapped up into a beautiful user-friendly interface, it's not hard to see why RONIN is so loved among researchers.

Here are some videos to showcase how simple RONIN is to use.

RONIN
CLOUD COMPUTING AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

One of the biggest benefits of cloud for research is the ability to completely customise your computing resources for each analysis. The intuitive "shopping cart" design of RONIN enables researchers to build their desired cloud resources with just a few simple clicks.

RONIN converts complexity into commodity.

CREATE A CLUSTER IN MINUTES

CREATE A CLUSTER IN MINUTES

Sharing is not as much fun as it seems. Why wait in the queue when you can create your own auto-scaling cluster and shut it down when you are done? RONIN offers all of the popular schedulers and operating systems. We take care of access, networking, storage and even offer spot market pricing for your compute nodes.

RONIN stretches those precious research funds further than ever.

COST MANAGEMENT & VISIBILITY

When moving to the cloud we understand that cost management becomes... well... cloudy.

We felt this was a problem worth meeting head on. RONIN makes it easy to understand and monitor the cost for each cloud resource across your entire project. We'll also send you notifications when you've reached 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% of your project budget.

Handy, right?

RONIN SMART SCHEDULE

RONIN
NEVER SLEEPS, NEVER FORGETS

Are you human? Us too!

One of the real drawbacks to being a human is we forget things, like turning machines off when we don't need them.

RONIN's Smart Schedule feature takes care of this for you so your budget doesn’t run away while you aren't looking.

RONIN LINK UBUNTU DESKTOP

RONIN
ONE CLICK CLOUD DESKTOP

RONIN LINK is a cross platform desktop application available for Windows, Ubuntu and Mac that allows you to easily connect to all of your cloud machines and clusters.

We leverage Amazon Web Service’s NICE DCV software to provide you with a low latency, secure Linux or Windows desktop in the cloud.

In addition to one-click virtual desktops, RONIN LINK also makes it easy to monitor your resources and create secure tunnels to applications such as RStudio or Jupyter Notebook.

EASILY PACKAGE YOUR MACHINE

RONIN
MACHINE PACKAGES FOR REPRODUCIBLE RESEARCH

Reproducible research is key to being a successful scientist, but it is not always so simple.

Fortunately, RONIN enables researchers to easily package up their entire compute environment (even whole clusters) so that the same software, datasets and configuration can be made available to others and relaunched at any time.

With RONIN reproducible research is just one click away!

DRIVE MANAGEMENT
DRIVE BACKUPS

RONIN
SIMPLE DATA & STORAGE MANAGEMENT

We know that data management is the bane of every researcher's existence. So we wanted to make sure it is a breeze in RONIN.

Want to securely backup your data from a machine? There's a button for that! Or how about quickly restoring a backup to a drive so that it can be attached back onto a machine? Yep, there's a button for that too.

With options to easily resize drives, manage versions and even archive datasets, RONIN makes data management seamless and satisfying!

RONIN COMPLIANCE

We built RONIN with all researchers and data in mind. That's why RONIN can support even the highest security and compliance standards, including HIPAA, that require in-depth auditing capabilities, as well as backup and disaster recovery capabilities.

See below for an example of some of the data security features we have integrated into RONIN.

RONIN STORAGE OBJECT ACCESS MANAGEMENT

DATA SECURITY AND ACCESS MANAGEMENT

Every action that a user makes within RONIN is logged and can be audited. This allows complete visibility into what changes have been made to data access credentials, when those changes were made, and by whom.

RONIN provides intuitive tools for granular protection of data by user and machine to prevent accidental data loss or exposure, and to limit data access according to the principles of least privilege and separation of duties. Complex security capabilities become simple operations that researchers can execute manually, or these can be automated through the AWS Application Programming Interface.

With the ability to completely lockdown RONIN and isolate it from the outside world, rest assured your datasets are safe and secure in your account.
