Differences Between the Cloud and On-Premises Environments

Some features of Oracle Managed File Transfer behave differently in the cloud than in an on-premises environment.

Oracle Managed File Transfer Cloud Service Oracle Managed File Transfer On Premises

You provision Oracle Managed File Transfer Cloud Service from the SOA Cloud Service console. Run the Oracle SOA Cloud Service provisioning wizard and select Oracle Managed File Transfer Cloud Service.

See Provisioning Oracle Managed File Transfer Cloud Service for information about the Oracle SOA Cloud Service provisioning wizard, including prerequisites for running the wizard.

You must manually install Oracle Managed File Transfer on your own hardware.

File source and targets are available, but not typically used in the cloud. The FTP sever is not typically used in secure environments. It is recommended that you use sFTP exclusively in the cloud.
