OIC | Embedded file server in Oracle integration | using file server in oracle integration generation 2

File Server provides an embedded SFTP server within Oracle Integration, enabling organizations to focus on building integrations without needing to host and maintain a separate SFTP server.

Three Reasons to Use File Server:

File Server is an SFTP server that is bundled with Oracle Integration. With File Server, you get 500 GB of storage for free, allowing you to store, share, and receive files, including files for SaaS integrations and third-party transfers.

  1. Eliminate the cost and operational expenses associated with hosting and maintaining an SFTP server: Managing a do-it-yourself file-based storage system is complex and daunting. From setting up hardware to maintaining the server, implementing a homegrown solution costs both time and money. With File Server, you get free file storage. Moreover, Oracle manages the operational tasks for you, so you can focus on solving more pressing business problems.
  2. Create file-based integrations easily: If your organization needs an integration solution that supports file-based integrations, FileServer is for you. And because File Server is embedded in Oracle Integration, you can start building file-based integrations quickly.
  3. Manage permissions in one place, using in an intuitive interface: Configuring and managing multiple users, groups, and folders in an SFTP environment can be challenging, but this work is simplified with File Server. File Server has a powerful administrative console that contains the core set of features that you expect from an SFTPserver, all in an intuitive user interface that streamlines your workflows.

To begin using File Server in Oracle Integration, it must first be enabled for the Oracle Integration instance in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console. Enabling File Server is a one time action.

Common Use Cases

File Server can be used in a variety of scenarios. Here are some common use cases

  1. Communication with trading partners Communication with trading partners such as customers and suppliers. In these cases, File Server enables trading partners to send information such as purchase orders, invoices, and shipping information using SFTP.
  2. Integration with SaaS applications SaaS (or on-premises) applications often export bulk data to files on an SFTP server such as File Server. For example, Oracle E-Business Suite generates a zip file with external transactions, which need to be bulk uploaded to ERP. Oracle Integration can pick up the files, process them, and send them to a target system.
  3. SFTP server lift-and-shift If your organization is running an on-premise SFTP server with Oracle Integration using the SFTP adapter, you may want to move this SFTP server to the cloud. Move the SFTP files into the Oracle Integration File Server, and redirect the SFTP adapter.
