Novell eDirectory - ( v. 8.8.2 ) - media - Product Details
Directory services are a necessity for today's competitive enterprises. With a directory service, you have a customized, systematic way to unify identities, resources, devices and policies like e-mail addresses, applications, files, people or groups, automated systems, peripheral devices (such as printers) and other network components.While it's vital to have a directory service, it also matters which directory service you choose. Far more than just an LDAP store, Novell eDirectory is an LDAP directory service, and forms the basis for many of the world's largest identity-management deployments. Since its debut more than ten years ago, eDirectory has been trusted for its scalability, compatibility, reliability, manageability and security.You need an infrastructure that can grow along with your evolving business. Novell eDirectory meets the demands of large-scale, high-end directory deployments. Companies like CNN.com, Brasil Telecom and TransUnion rely on eDirectory as their foundation. In fact, eDirectory scales to 1 billion objects on a single server, so even the largest and most complex networks can have eDirectory grow alongside them without performance degradation.It's impractical to manually manage every machine and user in the company every day, all day. Novell eDirectory allows you to keep your environment in tact while allowing your users to remain productive with their individual environments. In addition to platform neutrality, eDirectory supports a host of emerging industry standards and Web-services protocols: DSML, SOAP and XML, among others. The Open Group has given eDirectory LDAP certification, acknowledging its conformance to the LDAP standard. These types of support maximize the technology investments you've already made, freeing you from vendor lock-in.
