RONIN is an incredibly simplistic web application that allows researchers and scientists to launch complex compute resources within minutes, without the nerding.
RONIN comes pre-baked with enterprise-ready reporting, collaboration, business intelligence and management information capabilities. Business sponsors? Happy. CFOs? Happier. Security? If they could smile, they would.
Technical hurdles. Assumed knowledge. These are the stresses faced by your researchers. RONIN removes the stress and enables access to vast amounts of compute and storage in seconds, not months. No IT degree required. No helpdesk calls. No more late nights reading about ports and mounts.
Waiting for cardboard boxes with cables and RAM in them? Waiting for Gareth to install them on his rack that only he can access? RONIN gives you access to over 60 different machine configurations, available in as little as 60 seconds. No more Gareths.
Are you spending your nights working out what packages to install?
Tools, equipment and big computers should be simple commodities that enable and empower you, not shackles slowing you down.
RONIN converts complexity into commodity.
Not only do our researchers and scientists have the responsibility of expanding humanity’s understanding of the physical and natural world, they are often thrust into roles such as system administrator, network engineer and storage manager in order
to enter the world of cloud computing and e-research.
RONIN does the IT part then get's the hell out of the way so you can build something great.
Are you human? Us too!
One of the real drawbacks to being a human is we have the capacity to forget things, like turning things off when we don't need them.
The RONIN Smart Schedule remembers for you so your budget doesn’t run away while you aren't looking.
When moving to the cloud we understand that cost management becomes... well... cloudy...

We didn't want to drown you in words,
