Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Our Technology

Built on Cisco technology, the Oasis network spans over 50 locations across England, linking our academies together into a single centrally managed IT solution.

Hosted out of our two national data centres and leveraging the power of the Microsoft Cloud through Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Office 365, we provide an Enterprise IT solution to over 35,000 users. 

Oasis IT are responsible for over 14000 devices, including laptops, desktops, tablets and mobile phones. Our mobile technology is managed through the MDM platform JAMF and all our devices operate the latest versions of Windows 10 or MacOS.

Across the country there are over 1200 classrooms utilising interactive projectors or large advanced interactive touchscreens. This sits alongside conference room setups utilising Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams for internal audio, visual and interactive communications.

The pair of Cisco Nexus switches manage the flow of traffic around our network, sharing the bandwidth delivered by our three MIA links between all our academies and offices. The estate wide Cisco Meraki Wireless solution allows authorised users to seamlessly move between sites and continue to access the resources they need.

Our team manage over 250 Microsoft Windows servers, within a Microsoft Hyper-V Virtualisation Environment, deploying a full range of Microsoft technologies including Microsoft System Centre Configuration Manager (SCCM), Microsoft System Centre Data Protection Manager (DPM), Microsoft System Centre Operations Manager (SCOM) and Microsoft System Centre Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM).
