Verizon Uses OpenSSO and Directory Server to Enable 75M Users

I had to blog about this. Verizon is live with 40 million users, 1 million logins per day, and peaks at 4,000 logins per minute, using OpenSSO and Sun Directory server !! As an architect, this is the kind of scalability that we like to brag about (publicly!!) . Please see the blogs by Dan Raskin and Nick Wooler. The Verizon presentation is at http://blogs.sun.com/raskin/resource/Verizon_OpenSSO_Gartner_Preso_Nov08.pdf .

A sad news ..

When I started getting involved in Sun Comms (and Messaging server), one of the key resources I have used are the Sun blogs. One blog, I used to regularly read/refer was by Jonathan Hawkins. Just came to know, that Jonathan Hawkins, passed away, after fighting cancer. My deepest sympathies to his family. I have never met Jonathan, but this is an instance of a person's influence and knowledge, spreading far and wide around the world, by virtue of his work. Long live Sun blogs !!

From the Bhagavad Gita ...
    For certain is death for the born 
    And certain is birth for the dead; 
    Therefore over the inevitable
    Thou shouldst not grieve.
        Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 2
        (250 BC - 250 AD)
