Roving Edge Infrastructure Data Sync Tasks

Describes how to manage the transmission of object storage data between buckets on your Roving Edge Infrastructure devices and your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure tenancy. This update allows you to synchronize data between the RED and OCI cloud, and perform software updates. .

You can perform the following data sync tasks:


The maximum size of an object you can use with Roving Edge Infrastructure devices is 5 TB. Any objects in your object store workload or any custom images greater than 5 TB in size are not included in the data synchronization.

The following are the prerequisite tasks for performing a bi-directional data synchronization:

  • Connect your Roving Edge Infrastructure device to your local site network, such as a site headquarters using the internet or FastConnect.

  • Provide routing using the internet or FastConnect to an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure region.

  • Specify the object storage buckets on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure that contain the data preloaded on the node or cluster at the time of provisioning. These buckets are the source or destination of the data being transferred during the synchronization.

    Configure separate buckets to be either the source or destination of the transferred data. You cannot have bi-directional tasks or a task where the same pair of buckets reverse roles as bucket and source.


    You cannot set up a bi-directional sync using two tasks and the same object storage buckets used by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and the Roving Edge Infrastructure devices.
