Sun’s Identity Team have been busy over the summer! On Oct. 9, 2009 the Identity Management Team announced the release of Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7 and Role Manager 5. Next Wednesday, Oct. 21 at 8:00am PT, Neil Ghandi (Role Manager Technical Product Manager) and I will be giving an overview of some of the great features that exist in the new releases. Here are a couple of highlights:
What’s New with Directory Server EE 7.0
• Boosts speed and performance: DSEE 7.0 has been optimized to improve performance of some operations by more than 3x the current version. In addition, this release provides hardware optimization with up to 60% improvement in authentications and modifications.
• Reduces Total Cost of Ownership– Reduce cost by using the only solution in the market that provides customers with a directory server, virtual directory, proxy server, web console and Active Directory synchronization tool-kit under a single license.
• Hassle Free Upgrade – DSEE 7.0 provides a simple upgrade path and provides 5x performance improvement in data import times, thereby reducing migration costs.
What’s New with Role Manager 5.0
• 360 Degree View of Assigned Access – A unified view of data related to user access that empowers reviewers to make more intelligent decisions concerning users access.
• Closed-loop Remediation – A complete end-to-end solution for reviewing user access and removing inappropriately assigned access.
