How Ronin built ‘Uber for supercomputers’ for Adelaide University
ARN, Other, 26/11/2020, Eleanor Dickinson
Independent software vendor Ronin has set up an Uber-style cloud platform for supercomputers using Amazon Web Services (AWS). The Canberra-based AWS partner built a prototype “orchestration engine” — also named Ronin — for researchers at the University of Adelaide, which would help them simplify their usage of AWS cloud solutions and help them analyse genomic data. […] According to Ronin founder and CEO Nathan Albrighton, the prototype was inspired by work the AWS select consulting partner had previously conducted with Australian research agency CSIRO.
