Gluu: OpenDS as the foundation of Online Identity Management Services

Gluu is a San Antonio, TX, USA based startup offering a cloud based Identity Service that aims to make it easier for organizations to securely share identity information and to achieve inter-domain web single sign on. The Gluu services are built on open source software such as Apache, Penrose, MySQL database, OpenSSO and OpenDS.

OpenDS, the LDAPv3 directory service in Java, is used for different services in the Gluu infrastructure. It is used for storing all of the users' identity information as well as groups and access control information, in a highly available manner thanks to several instances of OpenDS replicated in a multi-master topology. Also OpenDS is used as a cache layer for some of the Gluu internal data, for availability and performance. Finally OpenDS is also the configuration store for the OpenSSO services. Gluu offers web services access to the LDAP directory services through the OpenDS DSML Gateway, a web application translating DSML messages to LDAP.

OpenDS was chosen over other directory servers for its inherent multi-platform support, its numerous features and its simplicity. Read all the details in the questionnaire.

CDOVaR.net does online Risk and Pricing with OpenDS

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."

Make sure you read the full questionnaire for OpenDS adoption by CDOVaR.net for additional details on all of the above, and more.
