We've been busy at Ronin, check out all our new features!
Connecting to machines can be tricky, especially from within secure, locked down environments. We've created this page to help you determine where the problem lies.
All Ronin Clusters get a free open source tool called Ganglia to help monitor your hardware. This article shows you how
Auto Scale Clusters in Ronin are your very own High Performance Computers that automatically scale by CPU's as workloads get more intensive. They're really easy to fire up. No, really!
This article shows how Ronin can be used to provide an organisational service catalog, using our Packaging and Administration tools
In this video, we will show you how to get started with RStudio in Ronin, from creating a new machine with RStudio installed, to accessing it through your web browser via Ronin Link
Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be many nice 'clickety click' interfaces for moving files between Linux and Object Stores... But that's ok! Let's get started!
In our previous article, we explained Object Storage, versioning and archiving. Once you have created an object store and generated a key, you can then connect to it!
Ronin just got a whole lot more secure! Introducing Two Factor Authentication!
We aim to minimise the complexity of cloud, not just those with IT degrees. Introducing our new SSH desktop app for Ubuntu - Ronin Link!
We've been busy here at Ronin, simplifying Amazon's S3, versioning and Glacier, so that everyone can benefit from what the cloud has to offer, not just tech savvy nerds like us.
Here at Ronin, we aim to simplify everything related to cloud computing. We decided the word backup is a simplified word for snapshot.
Now that you've connected to your machine with PuTTY, you may be wondering how you might create a secure SSH tunnel to your application. No, you can't just use regular ssh commands for some reason (who knew?!)
Port forwarding via SSH (SSH tunneling) creates a secure connection between a local computer and a remote machine through which services can be relayed. Port forwarding with SSH to the rescue!
We recently presented Ronin at an AWS webinar! Watch how the RONIN team transform your AWS account into a finely tuned self-service research platform
We thought it would be a good idea to give you some default SSH commands and usernames to make connecting easier. If you are having difficulty, check out our connecting to linux via SSH article for more information.
We think its a good idea to have a summary of all your project's storage volumes accessible with quick actions and the ability to create blank storage volumes, and volumes from snapshots on
A storage volume is a durable, block-level storage device that you can attach to a single machine. You can use storage volumes as primary storage for data of any sort, it can be
So, you've created an awesome machine. Instead of doing this set up each time you need a new machine with the same configuration, why not package this machine?!
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.Smart Schedule to the rescue!
After you attach a storage volume to your machine, you will still have to let Linux know it's there. It will also have to be in a format that Linux recognises.
If you no longer require a machine, you can terminate it. Terminating a machine in Ronin is permanent and irreversable!!! There are no do-overs! Be careful!
After you attach a storage volume to your machine, you will still have to let your operating system know it's there. We'll take you through how to do just that.
A snapshot is more than just a backup. In fact, it's a backup that replicates itself across three physical locations. And they're remarkably cheap, compared to any other storage, making it a great way to reduce your project's expenditure.
On the search results page, you will see everything that you have access to. Start typing in one of the search bars to narrow your results, or look for a particular Project, Machine, Storage or Package
