Default Fedora-directory-users Digest, Vol 39, Issue 21

Also, keep in mind that the*hugest directories...are often small in disk space and easy to do 100% caching in memory. I have a RHDS directory with over 120K users and I have 100% caching enabled...for about 3G of RAM. My response time is usually under 15 mils and the average cpu utilization is only around 4% at it's peak.

Also, just from a cost perspective I would say RHDS or Fedora DS is a much much much better bargain then AD. I would only use AD if I was doing a windows network or using some other Microsoft centric technology.

Hi William,

One of the things you need to address is the performance / speed of authentication.* Can your (AD -) server forest handle the amount of new kind of
authentication requests beside the WINS / DNS etc.*

I have* 2-servers ( in replica) of Fedora DS (FDS) with over 800k users. This is only for authentication of our website. There is also an read-only replica of the AD on it for internal use. Till now there is no performance issue.

We decided to move to FDS due to the amount of external users. We did this only for performance. AD could do it as well.

Ben.

[Fedora-directory-users] Business Case: Advantage OpensourceDirectory VS Active Directory



Hello all,

I have a question why i should use an opensource directory server for my
opensource activities!

I work for a large company! 70k users

We have a large MS Windows based infrastructure win2k3 with winxp
workstations.

For our open source servers and workstations we thought to get an
Opensource Directory server because of the specific options that Active
Directory cannot deliver.

But now i get a lot of people who say that active directory can do all of it!

Can someone help me with getting the right arguments so i have a valid
reason to create an opensource directory server?

The things i wanna administer are:
Sudoldap
Freeipa based authentication/dns
application management

and probably a lot more!

Please let me know!

With kind regards,

William
van de Velde
