Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) is a comprehensive analytics platform, empowering organizations to probe any data, anywhere, on any device. From OAC, you can connect to your organization’s mail server so that analysts can email their reports and data visualizations directly from Oracle Analytics.

In many organizations, strict policies and compliance requirements dictate the use of private Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) servers to have greater control over their email communications, security, and regulatory requirements, or when the volume of email communication is such that a private server becomes a more practical and cost-effective solution.

When faced with this requirement, connecting your private SMTP servers to OAC assists in meeting your organization's needs.

This blog describes leveraging private SMTP servers within OAC while harnessing the power of OCI load balancers. Specifically, it explores how to configure private SMTP servers seamlessly within the Oracle Analytics Cloud environment, utilizing public OCI load balancers to bridge the gap between private networks and the internet. This integration not only enhances email communication strategies but also fortifies operational integrity, compliance postures, and overall technology resilience.
