After writing articles like CONNECTING TO YOUR MACHINE IN RONIN and ACCESSING YOUR SERVER APPLICATION WITH SSH PORT FORWARDING, we started to realise the learning curve for new cloud users is quite high. Running command line tools can be daunting and new users often got stuck with learning repetitive commands just to start work.

We aim to minimise the complexity of cloud and make it available for everyone, not just those with IT degrees, while maintaining the level of security those nerds in the basement are happy with.

Introducing... Ronin Link!
