Seminar: Merits of Directories

Abstract

This lecture explores the merits of Directories, their use as an enterprise tool, and most importantly it discusses circumstances when their use over relational databases is preferable. Directory performance and replication are covered along with inherent properties that differentiate it from relational database technology. The aim is to educate developers about Directories in general, and clarify for architects when Directories should and should not be used.
