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
