Oasis Platform Evaluation

The Oasis Platform release now includes a full API for operating catastrophe models and a general consolidation of the platform architecture. Windows SQL server is no longer a strict requirement. The platform can be run via docker containers on a single machine or, if required, scaled up to run on a cluster.

Docker support is the main requirement for running the platform. A Linux based installation is the main focus of this example deployment. Running the install script from this repository automates install process of the OasisPlatform API v1, User Interface and example PiWind model.

Install Prerequisites

Cloud Provisioning

PiWind is an example model and only requires a small to medium sized Instance for demonstration. This of course will change depending on the size and complexity of the models hosted on the platform.

  • For running in AWS EC2 we recommend a a medium sized general purpose Instance such as T2.medium or larger
  • To host on Azure use a Standard_B2s or larger instance

Installation Steps

  1. install git, docker and docker-compose

For example on an Ubuntu/Debian based Linux system use:

sudo apt update && sudo apt install git docker docker-compose 
  1. Clone this repository
git clone 
cd OasisEvaluation
  1. Run the deployment script
sudo ./

Note: sudo is not required if the Docker post-install steps are followed to run docker as a non-root user.

Oasis Docker Components

Component Description Technology
ShinyProxy Provides multi-user support and enterprise integration features on top of a Shiny app. ShinyProxy
OasisUI The application server for the Oasis user interface, a web app. Shiny App
OasisAPI The application server for the Oasis API. Django Application Server
OasisAPI DB The database for the Oasis API. Stores the system meta-data, but not the detailed model data, exposure data or results. MySql (other options)
Worker monitor Monitors the model worker and updates the Oasis API database with the status of tasks. Custom Python code
Celery - Message Queue Message queue for the celery job management framework. Rabbit MQ (other options)
Celery – Backing Store Backing store for the celery job management framework. MySQL (other options)
Datastore File based datastore for exposure data, analysis results and model data. Docker volume
Model Worker Celery worker that can run a lookup or model execution task for a particular model version. The model data is attached to the container from the datastore at startup. Custom Python and C++ code

Web interfaces

On installation a single admin account is created which is used to access the following web interfaces.

User: admin
Pass: password

OasisUI Interface - localhost:8080/app/BFE_RShiny

Trying the API

This evaluation also includes a Jupyter notebook that accesses the API using the Oasis Python client.

The following sequence diagram illustrates how the general steps in the analysis, encapulated by the API client functions, map to specific API calls.
