Vikas Mahajan of PriceWaterhouseCoopers fame has written a great piece for Novell AppNotes that compares the virtues of databases and directories. The article, that we retitled 'cause we're that way, is formally known as "Should I Use a Directory, a Database, or Both?"

In the article, Vikas delves into the question of whether to use an directory service or a relational database to solve technological problems around the shop.

The feature article covers these topics:

  • Characteristics of an LDAP-Compliant Directory
  • Characteristics of an RDBMS
  • How Directories are Used
  • Determining Directory or Database
