Talon FAST™ and Oracle Cloud
The strength of Oracle Cloud in every office—we make it a reality.
Oracle's solutions have been at the forefront of enterprise customers' datacenter and cloud needs for years. The benefits it provides to all forms of business have impacted organizations like never before. Now, FAST™ can multiply those benefits by helping organizations consolidate unstructured data into Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), and enable a centralized data set for users to collaborate on globally in real-time.
How They Work TogetherTalon FAST™ and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) seamlessly deliver a centralized data set, which is enabled for global file access, sharing and real-time collaboration. The main repository for the unstructured data is a share (or number of shares) configured on the OCVM virtual machine instance in the Oracle Cloud, with the storage provided by attached Oracle Block Volume (OBV) resource. With this central repository, all locations of the enterprise, regardless of their locations in the world, can use this ‘central file server instance’ as if they were local.
Oracle Cloud Storage
OBV storage is a storage service attached to OCVM compute instances offering the ability to create one or more file shares for the Talon Core instance, supporting the standard Server Message Block (SMB) Protocol. Both SMB 2.1 and SMB 3.0 are supported. Further, applications running in other OCI virtual machines or cloud services can mount the file share in the cloud, just as a desktop application mounts a typical SMB share. The OCVM file server instance can be either a Microsoft Windows Server Scale-out File Server or Linux File Server running Samba.
FAST™ Fabric Edge InstanceEach remote office will run a virtual appliance (VM instance) of Talon FAST™ configured as an edge instance. The edge VMs provide critical performance-enhancing functions such as file caching, file-level differencing, and local service to users. These edge VMs can run on any available Windows Server 2012 R2 or 2016 environment in the remote location, and will be configured with a local cache partition, which will use algorithms to retain the most often used data for that location to ensure local-like performance for common tasks.
