What is Oracle Unified Directory?
Oracle Unified Directory is all in one directory solution providing proxy, storage, visualization, and synchronization capabilities. It requires all the services to be showing high performance in carrier-grade environments. OUD is said to be part of the Oracle Directory Services Plus. It provides scalability to many entries for ease of installations and elastic deploying along with effective monitoring.
Key features of Oracle Unified Directory
Unified proxy and storage
Oracle Unified Directory helps one in deploying of less fragmented components while providing flexibility to all other deployments. It is an all Java-Based solution, it helps in easy installing coming with lightweight deployment facilities.
Giving smaller footprints helps to ease the deployment
Providing easy footprints and easy installation, OUD helps to maximize the deployment opportunities. It allows ISVs to direct their applications. The directory service is easy to install and configuration is done in minutes. Just with a few clicks, a new set of data is ready in front of you.
Understanding of OUD high availability deployments
Enterprises need to depend on directory service. High availability is considered to be a system-based approach for agreeing on operational level performance for measurement of the period as per the directory service. It offers cost-effective and user high-end availability features eliminating the downtime and maximizing the time when the system is available.
Understanding of the approach in mitigating SPOFs
An SPOF is a hardware component making the entire system non-viable and unusable in case the application fails. Redundancy is the strategic approach in handling SPOFs. Redundancy deals with providing redundant hardware or software components or sometimes both. Having redundancy with replicated directory service is the best and
effective way of achieving higher availability.
Understanding the working of Oracle Enterprise with OUD
OUD helps in centrally managing the database all across the website. Users can connect to the Oracle enterprise by entering the credentials in the OUD proxy server. The database helps in executing LDAP search operations for answering query-specific authentication. When the directory server is receiving a request, it uses all the authenticated information by the user related to the bind operation and the access control instructions. The server can allow or deny permissions like reading, writing, or even compose. The permission level depends on what the user is providing.
While using Oracle, Oracle Unified Directory is the core for providing the credentials for working in oracle. ‘
