Oracle Managed File Transfer - POV

  1. 1. Oracle Managed File Transfer – 12c Abstract Increased awareness of SOA has made industry to adopt several of the SOA technologies in the Enterprise Integration. The business has found multiple evolutions with the inception of SOA. Real-time transfer of files as part of the business has made the MFT (Managed file transfer) as a de facto candidate to fulfill many usecases. The plain transfer of files (FTP) comes with its own limitations along with, which makes it difficult to manage, monitor, secure and several of transfer usecases. Oracle MFT (12c) product is catering to all the above said challenges with the rich interface around it. The intuitive user interface makes it easy, even to a non-technical resource to Design, Monitor and manages the file transfer Challenges in the current transfer mechanism Several of questions that come to mind. - Is the transfer using Oracle MFT is secured? - Is it possible to schedule the transfer of files to automate the process? - Can the transfer be paused and resumed on a need base? - Can the transfer be audited? - Is there a dashboard to view the overall transfer? - Can MFT be easily integrated with other SOA components? - Is it possible to transfer the large files? - And so on…
  2. 2. Oracle Managed File Transfer  Sophisticated monitoring option – The rich monitoring feature provides a dashboard with all active, completed, failed and total transfer. This will help to track the transfer status between source and target  Secured transfer mechanism – Avoids the hassle of external access to the files. Adds additional encryption/decryption mechanism using PGP. The Embedded FTP/sFTP Servers use the security roles, users of weblogic servers  Pause/resume the transfer – Enables to pause the transfer of files and resume at a later point of time. This feature become handy when there is a resource crunch, and resume when the resources is free  Built in scheduling mechanism – Integrated with Oracle Enterprise Scheduler Service (ESS), enables to schedule the transfer. With this, o the transfer can be scheduled at off peak hours for a better performance o Bulk transfer can be achieved to the target system to improve the operation challenges o Plan a large file transfer from/to target system  Pre-Process/Post Process – enables to compress, decompress, PGP encrypt/decrypt can be added as a pre or post process the transfer  Restricted access to the payload with the roles, users of weblogic server
  3. 3.  Seemless Integration with all the SOA components – MFT has been very well integrated with Oracle B2B as well as other SOA components. The below screenshot provides the snapshot of integration with Oracle B2B. Eventhough MFT is a separate install from SOA, the instance tracking feature present in SOA is also extended to MFT. Hence the instances messages, that involve MFT can also be tracked using SOA. Various components which can be integrated with MFT are o Oracle B2B o Oracle SOA Suite for Healthcare o SOA o OSB o ODI  Resubmit feature – The resubmit present in MFT, enables the system to resubmit the transfer incase of any error scenarios, or the resubmit upon the request from the target system  Notification during negative usecases – The –ve usecases can be integrated with notification feature which further can be handled upon manual intervention Conclusion With the growing challenges in the EAI world, it is important to ensure the file transfer usecases are still to gain the confidence on security, reliability and manageability of file transfer. Oracle MFT fulfils all such challenges with added rich features around this. By implementing Oracle MFT solutions, the enterprise file transfer usecases automated, scheduled and increase the effectiveness and performance.
