Remember I was blogging about the great people you get to work with here at Sun
? Well, one of the best is Don Bowen, Product Line Manager for Directory Server. I first met Don in Munich at the Burton Catalyst Conference in 2002 - gosh, was it really only 2½ years ago? Don knows everybody
in the industry - he was working in identity management before it was even called identity management. If you're on LinkedIn
, his profile is here
. If you're not on LinkedIn, and you work in tech, sign up, RIGHT NOW! It's the single most efficient mode of networking I know, and a great way to get back in touch with people you used to work with.
Anyway - back to the point. Don has recorded a 'Take 10
' - a < 10 minute presentation on Directory Server Enterprise Edition
('DSEE'), explaining why we now talk about the directory service
rather than a directory server
and the huge functionality included as standard in DSEE. There is also a white paper
explaining in more detail just what we mean by a 'directory service'.
Go take a look, and feel free to leave a comment here with feedback - I'll make sure it gets to Don.
