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

OpenDS and DSEE 7 Offer Compression

This week we have been sharing the different ways customer's can use compression to improve performance and reduce cost within your Directory Server Enterprise Edition environment.  On Wednesday, Brad Diggs, shared how customer's can use compression to reduce their storage footprint by 60%. Today, Ludo Poitou, Community Manager for OpenDS, wrote a great blog post on how to use compression in your OpenDS 2.2 instance.  Ludo shows how OpenDS can reduce the overall size of your directory instance.  He also gives pointers to how to configure in your directory environment.

Next week, Wajih Ahmed will be talking about how customer's can "Improving Import Speed Through ZFS Caching of LDIF import file".  He will show import rate of ds7 and opends with and without primary and secondary cache disabled vs. enabled.  This is another great example of the proven performance that Sun on Sun provides.

DSEE 7 Reduces Cost of Storage Using F-20 PCI Flash Drives

DSEE 7 launched in November and just after Christmas a couple of our Directory experts in the community at Sun took it for a test drive on the new F-20 PCIe flash drives at Sun.  The results confirmed the internal testing we did in the improved performance in import times, the reduction in Directory footprint due to compression and the overall performance improvements for DSEE 7.   This is critical for our customers because it will allow them to take advantage of growth in their business while bending the operational cost curve for their system. In some organizations, their operational budget is their biggest line-item so being able to meet growth targets while also addressing the time, cost and complexity of servicing the environment can release capital for investment in new product development.  

The team that did this great work has agreed to share the results of their testing in a series of blog articles over the next week.  The first article will be presented tomorrow by Brad Diggs, Principal Field Technologist.  Here are just a few highlights from the results that Brad will share tomorrow on compression:

  • The storage footprint was reduced by as much as 66%.
  • We were able to cache greater than 50% more entries into the filesystem cache.
  • Compression almost completely negated average entry growth that is due to the natural addition of operational attributes and replication metadata over time.
  • The nsslapd-db-page-size could be smaller and more consistent with entry growth over time. 

The other team members will be sharing insights that they learned during the testing so I encourage you to bookmark these blog's and take a look over the next couple of weeks.  The team will be sharing not only the results but the lessons learned.  One of the blog articles will discuss tuning to get better import times as well as how to set-up your own SLAMD environment to test your Directory infrastructure.  Please bookmark the following blog locations to see the results:

Brad Diggs, Principal Field Technologist, here
Ludo Poitou,  OpenDS Community Manager, here
Mark Craig, Directory Integration Team Manager, here
Wajih Ahmed,  Principal Field Technologist, here
Nick Wooler, Directory Server Product Line Manager, here

As you look at your business goals for 2010 and are looking for ways to meet your growth goals while keeping your costs under control then take another look at Directory Server 7.  Does your Directory Server provide you with the proven performance and continued innovation as Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7?

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.

Identity in Healthcare Webinar Nov. 18

The  Sun Identity Management team will be giving a webinar next Wednesday to discuss the very important topic of Identity Management and healthcare.  As the healthcare legislation moves through congress the increase of 36M patients on healthcare providers, insurance companies, and patients will be profound.  The cost savings projected by the bills will rely on IT systems to provide increased access to information to drive productivity gains.  As we have seen with recent high profile identity security breeches at hospitals identity security is critical in making sure the right people have access to the appropriate information, that information must be shared with all members of the value chain securely.

Sun's Identity Management Suite provides a powerful package of solutions to help with storing identity information with Directory Server Enterprise Edition;  managing authorization, federation and web services security with OpenSSO; providing provisioning solutions with Identity Manager; and, defining and managing role based access control with Role Manager.

Join this free Webinar to learn how Sun's identity management solutions can help your organization to:

  • Automate management of digital identities for other providers, patients, physicians, clinicians, and payors Provide single sign-on (SSO) and secure federated access to privacy-regulated healthcare information while adhering to strict mandates
  • Enable delegated, self-service password management
  • Comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), internal security policies, and corporate governance policies with complete auditing and reporting capabilities

Sun identity management solutions make it easier for healthcare organizations to manage and share digital information.
