Increase in enquiries for migrations from Sun Directory and other directory servers to OpenLDAP

LinuxOpenLDAPOpen SourceSuretec Hi all,

Everyone involved in the directory sector and OpenLDAP has been seeing lots more enquiries to migrate from Sun Directory to OpenLDAP as the future of Sun Directory, now Oracle owns Sun is becoming a concern, as is their new pricing model. We obviously have experience doing this and migration from any other directory server.

If you want to convert your enterprise directory from a proprietary and expensive closed-source supplier to OpenLDAP, a modern, more efficient, and less expensive Open Source software solution please do contact us.

Our partners Symas also have a Directory Services Upgrade Program that we can do for you in the UK:

Convert your Enterprise Directory from a proprietary and expensive closed-source supplier to OpenLDAP, a modern, more efficient, and less expensive Open Source software solution. Typically, enterprises dramatically reduce their annual cost converting to OpenLDAP from Sun, Oracle, Netscape, or iPlanet Directory Services products. The workload requires half or less the power and capacity for substantially improved performance. This is a relatively easy transition to make because LDAPv3 is highly standardized and OpenLDAP conforms to the most demanding requirements of the Internet Standards (RFC[?] 4511 and related RFCs)..

Symas Corporation will be glad to consult with your team and offer you a fixed-price, fixed schedule offer for conversion of your Enterprise Directory technology. This service includes:

- A complete evaluation of your present Directory Services servers
- A Detailed plan for implementation of the new technology
- A roadmap for conversion of existing LDAP[?] applications and data feeds
- Conversion of schema definitions
- Access Control conversions/implementation
- Database transfer and clean-up
- OpenLDAP deployment, tuning and configuration
- SSL Certificate Conversion
- Database reload
- Assistance with application testing
- Operational team training (LDAP University)
- One year of standard Gold
- level Symas OpenLDAP technical support


Please do contact us.

Thanks,

Gavin.

AsteriskLinuxOpenLDAPOpen SourceSuretec The first official release is out, and you can see lots of new features . Unfortunately there are still a few Realtime LDAP[?] driver bugs, but it's getting there.

It's well worth having a play with Asterisk 1.6.0 though.

Isode's M-Vault 14 versus OpenLDAP

OpenLDAP Howard Chu from Symas and Chief Architect of OpenLDAP has just finished some interesting benchmarks of Isode's M-Vault 14 versus OpenLDAP:

I recently tested Isode's M-Vault 14. For the most part there were no surprises, we were 5-6 times faster on the 1M entry DB. Load times were comparable, with OpenLDAP at around 3 minutes (as before) and Isode at around 4 minutes. While OpenLDAP delivered over 29,000 auths/sec using 8 cores, Isode delivered only 4600 auths/sec. (And there's still the interesting result that OpenLDAP delivered almost 31,000/sec using only 7 cores, leaving one core reserved for the ethernet driver.)
