UKUUG Spring 2009 Conference
24-26 March 2009 in London
OpenLDAP Replication Strategies
OpenLDAP has been replacing proprietary directory server offerings in the private sector, public sector and the financial sector at an increasing pace. This is largely due to its performance and scalability, dynamic configuration capabilities and flexible extensibility via bundled modules.
OpenLDAP would not have earned its place in these sectors without enterprise grade replication options.
In this talk, an overview of the latest production ready OpenLDAP 2.4 replication features will be discussed and the numerous best practice strategies will be presented covering the most common deployment configurations found in the wild.
Gavin Henry came to the FLOSS world quite late. In 2001 he was given a copy of Red Hat 6 whilst on a work placement at Halliburton during his degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering. From that point on he was hooked.
He is an avid contributor to various projects, mailing lists and forums (Fedora, CPAN projects, Asterisk, Dojo Toolkit...many more) and joined the OpenLDAP Engineering Team in 2007.
Gavin spends his days as Managing Director at Suretec Systems Limited, a leading UK Open Source Consultancy specialising in Squid, OpenLDAP, Samba, Amanda and Asterisk and founded the Suretec Group.
