Research Computing with RONIN on AWS

AWS Research Webinar Series

About the series

In many areas of computational research, the pace of innovation creates pressure to scale, store, process, and analyze large datasets. To meet these challenges, researchers can benefit from the flexibility of Amazon Web Services (AWS). RONIN, an AWS partner, has created a solution that can make using AWS easier for researchers and research IT leaders. Join our upcoming webinars to learn more about RONIN on AWS.

A beginner’s guide to genomics in the cloud with RONIN and AWS

When: Tuesday, March 23, 2021 | 12:00 PM PT/ 3:00 PM ET
Level: 200

Ready to harness the power of cloud computing for your genomics workflows? This webinar will take you through the basics of getting started with cloud computing and demonstrate how RONIN can simplify the analysis of your biological data. From the simple management of large datasets and customized compute environments, to easy data visualization and integration with GUI servers, you will explore many of RONIN’s most useful features. Whether you are already an experienced bioinformatician or just getting started with genomic analyses, this webinar will reveal how RONIN can help you unlock the true potential of cloud computing for your research.

Computational chemistry is extremely compute-intensive and can benefit from GPUs and high performance computing available in AWS. Check out this webinar to learn how high performance architectures on AWS can be used to run GROMACS quickly and efficiently. See how to choose your architecture to be most cost-efficient for the performance you need. Discover how to create a high performance cluster using RONIN, install GROMACS on the cluster, run using checkpointing to exploit less expensive spot pricing, visualizing your results, and save your cluster for future use.

Neuroimaging analyses in the cloud with AWS and RONIN

When: Tuesday, April 6, 2021 | 9:00 AM PT/12:00 PM ET
Level: 200

Researchers need higher resolution images, larger-scale multi-site studies, and the need for reproducibility. To accomplish this, they can transition a neuroimaging laboratory to AWS, which provides flexible, scalable compute and storage. Join this webinar to learn how you can use RONIN on AWS to run scalable analyses on a budget. Discover how to select cost-efficient instances for computationally intensive neuroimaging workloads (such as fmriprep, FreeSurfer, Advanced Normalization Tools) and how to run these on a high performance cluster, visualize results, and save the cluster for future use to reproduce results.
