Oracle has announced it’s set to buy Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) company Talari Networks to help the company grow its cloud offering with a more robust networking platform.
Talari has developed the Failsafe networking product that manages data flowing across networks. It will work alongside Oracle’s own Session Border Controller (SBC) to offer site-to-site and site-to-cloud connectivity and application access over IP networks, offering businesses greater uptime and reliability.
Oracle explained it wants to offer businesses entering the digital transformation arena with high availability and quality-of-experience (QoE), enabling the partnership to offer the full suite of cloud networking offerings. It will continue to offer Talari’s products to existing customers and Oracle explained it’ll continue to invest in the platform. Neither company has revealed whether Talari’s Failsafe will continue to operate under its own brand name or it will be changed to fit in with Oracle’s products.
As part of the deal, Oracle will gain access to Talari’s 500 customers in more than 40 countries. It targets industries including public sector, financial services, insurance, retail and manufacturing, fitting perfectly in-line with Oracle’s key business focuses. The deal is expected to close by the end of this year.
