Oracle to Acquire Talari Networks

Oracle has entered into an agreement to acquire Talari Networks, a provider of software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) technology.

According to Oracle, Talari’s proprietary Failsafe technology enhances the benefits of SD-WAN by adding greater reliability and predictability while maintaining security for site-to-site and site-to-cloud connectivity and application access over any IP network.

The addition of Talari’s technology is expected to complement Oracle Communications’ Session Border Controller (SBC) and network management infrastructure by adding high availability and quality-of-experience (QoE) connectivity and cloud application access across any IP network with the reliability and predictability of private networks.

The Talari technology is used for over 500 customers in over 40 countries, says Oracle.

Together, Oracle says, the companies will accelerate digital transformation and cloud adoption by providing customers with complete enterprise network solutions that ensure reliability and performance of real-time communications and mission-critical applications over any network.

The transaction is expected to close in 2018.
