Identity Manager 8, now with MySQL Support
By pelegri on Jan 06, 2009
This piece of news came up just before holiday break but is still worth posting: the latest patch of Sun's Identity Manager (188.8.131.52) now (again) supports MySQL Enterprise - see the notes from Mani and from Paul.
This combination provides another example of how to leverage the different software (and hardware) components into very compelling value-propositions to Sun's customers. In another related example, the Marines Corp is using the Identity Manager, Role Manager, OpenSSO and Directory Server to provide Access and Identity Management Solutions to more than 400K marines; the Goverment is particularly interested in using Open Source to reduce costs (and also to increase security!) BTW, I don't know if MySQL will be used in this particular solution - I'll see if I can find out and share.
