SimpleVM streamlines the launch of single Virtual Machines (VMs). It takes care of the network setup, SSH access and other tasks like e.g. volume mounts and provides the user with quick access to the machine. Once you have configured your VM to your liking e.g. by installing software, it can be shared simply by creating a snapshot and providing this snapshot to other users.
Tools and Pipelines - SimpleVM allows you to get up and running with your favorite tools and pipelines very quick.
Remote Desktop - Launch your own desktop in the cloud and be able to run programs with graphical user interface - in addition to the command-line.
Research Environments - Popular tools and environments such as RStudio® can be used directly in the cloud - via your browser
Workshops - Conduct workshops in the cloud. Prepare the machine for your participants at your convenience and start them in no time.
Cluster - Start and scale clusters of virtual machines - exactly according to your requirements.
SimpleVM lets you start and stop VMs with a few click. It is very beginner-friendly and does not require any complex configuration.
If you want to use SimpleVM you don’t have to learn about resource management, like network configurations or storage management. No background knowledge in cloud computing is necessary.
If you don’t want to use SimpleVM via terminal you can easily connect to your VM using a remote desktop or use tools like RStudio® in the cloud.
Our Research Environment feature allows you to use familiar and popular tools such as RStudio directly in the cloud, complete with graphical interface.
We could not conduct most of our research projects without the de.NBI cloud.
