Eager to harness the power of cloud computing for your research but don't want to have to learn the ins and outs of cloud complexities? Well look no further than RONIN.
RONIN is a revolutionary web application that enables users of all skill levels to wield the enormous power of AWS via a user-friendly interface. RONIN takes care of all the cloud's tricky bits in the background so researchers can focus on analysing their data and reaching their next big discovery or breakthrough.
RONIN provides the missing link between
researchers and cloud
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.
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
enables researchers to build their desired cloud resources with just a few
RONIN converts complexity into commodity.
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?
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.
When moving to the cloud we understand that cost management becomes... well... cloudy.
We felt this was a problem worth meeting head on.
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.
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 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.
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!
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!
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.
