Simplified AWS resources management for research groups.

Service Description

Ronin is UIS' response to the need of flexible cloud infrastructure with simplified setup and management. It uses a straightforward web application (Ronin) which hides AWS' technical details from the end users.

Its basic operation consists in creating research projects containing a group of users and a budget, and allowing those users to consume (create, reshape, monitor, stop, destroy) cloud resources from a predefined catalogue in a self-service way.

The application provides instant visual feedback about the existing resources, their statuses and associated costs as well as forecasts and notifications according to budget thresholds. From a management perspective, it allows a detailed expenditure tracking including breakdowns by cost centre, project, cost type and source of funds.
