Earlier this year, Oracle launched Oracle Unified Directory (OUD). OUD is the next generation directory server aimed at providing the scale and performance needed to build mobile applications and cloud applications. In general the landscape for directory services is changing. If you are creating applications that require high scale authentication you won't want to miss this session on Tuesday October 4th at 4pm in Moscone West.
- Increased demand for write operations - Today mobile applications are storing more personalization data and more location data. This is driving a greater demand for write operations. Approximately 40% of the operations are writes as opposed to 10 years ago when the write operations to the directory were approximately 20-30%. OUD provides 3x the performance on read operations when compared to ODSEE.
- Increased speed of read operations - despite the increase in demand for write operations, the need for high speed read operations has not diminished. OUD provides a 5x performance enhancement on write operations.
