Directory services are critical components in today’s interconnected business environment. They provide the foundation for identity and access management across ever-widening organizational boundaries, and can drive competitive advantage for the enterprise.
Within an intranet environment for example, a directory service can provide a global repository for shared information about employees, organizations and resources such as applications and network devices. In an extranet environment, a directory service might maintain profile information about customers, trading partners, and suppliers. Such a service might hold data from thousands up to millions of identities.
In both environments, the directory server plays a critical role. It must manage the identities, and control access to the information and services provided. It must make sure that access is fast, always available, authenticated and authorized; and it must ensure that the directory service is provided for a potentially very high number of users.
