Interested In Knowing More?

The OASIS Systems group supports the instructional mission of the College of Arts and Sciences by providing technical solutions in three main categories: Virtualization, Research Computing, and Secure Data Storage.

By utilizing Microsoft and Citrix technologies, OASIS provides on-demand application delivery solutions that enable Windows applications to be virtualized. These applications are then delivered to faculty, staff, and students using the Citrix XenApp technology. These applications are installed on centrally managed servers and delivered to the user via an online plugin, the start menu, and most web browsers. This means that instructional and research applications can be accessed from any location in the world.

OASIS utilizes the Citrix XenServer and VMware vSphere technologies to virtualize our server infrastructure. These budget saving technologies allow greater flexibility in managing our servers that provide the XenApp and XenDesktop technologies.  In addition it provides less downtime for maintenance while providing redundancy in mission critical systems.
