OpenDS: Open Source Identity Architecture and Gartner IAM London

The identity team was in London for the Gartner Identity Access Management conference last week which was a successful event.  We had the opportunity to meet and talk with some great customers and hear about the Thompson-Reuters implementation of OpenSSO and Directory Server Enterprise Edition serving 300,000 concurrent users with persistent cookies.  This implementation allows traders to get their Reuter’s feed on their smartphone and their desktop without having to login twice.  This reduces transaction fees and keeps their business model in tact.  The OpenSSO team did some great engineering work to meet the performance and functional requirements for Thomson-Reuters.  We video-taped the presentation and should have that for your soon.

Also, Ludo Poitou was recently featured in an article on OpenDS in the Architect Zone or DZone.  He describes some of the exciting things happening in the community with MySQL and discusses how to embed OpenDS in applications.  This is a great jump-off point for customers getting started with deploying OpenDS as an identity repository for their application or infrastructure serving email, calendar or network infrastructure.  You can read the whole article here.
