CDOVaR.net does online Risk and Pricing with OpenDS
By Ludo on Oct 24, 2008
CDO² is a a provider of innovative pricing and risk technologies. Hosted on Sun Network.com infrastructure, CDOVaR.net is a service provided by CDO² for structured credit pricing and risk, which allows financial institutions to transparently harness grid computing to manage their portfolios.
For user management, authentication and authorization, CDOVaR.net was looking for a Java based LDAP directory server, mainly to reduce the dependence on native code. After a trial period in the staging environment, replacing the existing LDAP product, OpenDS was adopted and allowed significant improvements in the systems deployment and the use of directory services.
As Dominic Cleal of CDO² writes: "We found OpenDS much simpler to deploy to a new environment, with far less dependencies and far easier to configure out of the box."
