Webcast: Sun2Oracle: Upgrading from DSEE to the next generation Oracle Unified Directory

Interested in upgrading from DSEE to OUD?

Register to learn from one customer.

Oracle Corporation
Oracle Security Solutions
We can improve our security and compliance,
at the same time we’re cutting costs and complexity.

Sun2Oracle: Upgrading from DSEE to the next generation Oracle Unified Directory

Oracle Unified Directory (OUD) is the world’s first unified directory solution with highly integrated storage, synchronization, and proxy capabilities. These capabilities help meet the evolving needs of enterprise architectures. OUD customers can lower the cost of administration and ownership by maintaining a single directory for all of their enterprise needs, while also simplifying their enterprise architecture.

OUD is optimized for mobile and cloud computing environments where elastic scalability becomes critical as service providers need a solution that can scale by dynamically adding more directory instances without re-architecting their solutions to support exponential business growth.

Join us for this webcast and you will:

  • Learn from one customer that has successfully upgraded to the new platform
  • See what technology and business drivers influenced the upgrade
  • Hear about the benefits of OUD’s elastic scalability and unparalleled performance
  • Get additional information and resources for planning an upgrade

Sun OpenDS Standard Edition 2.2 Released

Sun OpenDS TM Standard Edition (SE) 2.2 is an updated version of newest member of the Sun Directory Server family of products. It includes an LDAP core that is designed for easy installation, embedding, and configuration as well as a new Directory Proxy Server for load-balancing, high availability and data distribution.

Sun OpenDS SE 2.2 is a high-performance, highly-extensible, pure Java directory server that delivers a fully compliant LDAPv3 server that passes all of the compliance, interoperability and security tests suites. Furthermore, Sun OpenDS SE 2.2 implements most of the standard and experimental LDAP extensions defined in the IETF as RFCs or Internet-Drafts, ensuring maximum interoperability with LDAP client applications.

With a limited footprint allowing the server to be embedded in other Java applications, OpenDS has a very rich set of APIs making it easy to extend and increase usage scope.

Sun OpenDS SE 2.2 also supports a multi-master replication model with optional assured replication that guarantees the high availability of the data for all operations, searches or updates. While theoretically unlimited with regards to the number of masters, the Sun OpenDS SE 2.2 server has been stressed under heavy and durable load with 8 Masters.

This 2.2 version significantly increases performance both in read and write, making it one of the most efficient commercial directory servers available.

Sun OpenDS SE 2.2 is based on the open source community project OpenDS that is constructing next generation directory service software. The initial effort is led by Sun and the primary contributions are by Sun employees, but the goal is to attract developers and other interested parties from around the world. Sun OpenDS SE is the Sun commercial offering based on this project.
