Webinar: Best Practices in Directory and Identity Virtualization
Best Practices in Directory and Identity Virtualization
Migrate, Consolidate, & Federate to Deliver Better Services at a Lower Cost
A Two-Part Webinar Series by Radiant Logic
How can you modernize your infrastructure without disturbing your legacy environment? And how can you deliver those changes at a rate that is acceptable to your organization? From a point solution addressing a specific set of urgent needs, to a progressive but complete overhaul of your identity infrastructure, we are here to help!
Join us for a two-part webinar series to learn how directory virtualization technology, combined with a federated identity architecture and advanced HDAP storage, can help you:
- Tackle a specific directory migration/replacement project for Oracle/SUN, Novell, or IBM.
- Consolidate, federate, and rationalize your identity infrastructure in the era of cloud and distributed services.
Migrate From your Old LDAP to a Modern Directory Server Using Advanced Virtualization
You no longer need to be held hostage by the intricate web of dependencies that tie your applications to a directory, or forced to pay high licensing fees for an infrastructure that has stopped evolving. How can you break free? The magic word is virtualization, and it has proven to be a successful method for dozens of the world’s largest organizations.
- Do a seamless “in-place” LDAP directory migration without disrupting your existing environment—or impacting your applications and your users!
- Migrate your data and completely replace your old directory with a modern, scalable architecture, including HDAP, the world’s first big data-driven directory.

Consolidate, Federate, & Rationalize to Deliver a Complete Federated Identity Service
Understanding the dependencies within your directory infrastructure and using virtualization to migrate from an aging LDAP to a modern solution is just one step in renovating your identity infrastructure. You can also apply this approach to directory consolidation, by federating and rationalizing your entire infrastructure.
- Virtualize each directory or identity data source, including LDAP, AD domains, and databases/SQL sources.
- Consolidate Active Directory domains and forests and integrate them with your non-Microsoft data stores.
- Reduce complexity by mounting these virtual views into a global namespace.
- Deliver a common federated identity service that offers the support required by all your applications—legacy, web, and cloud.

A Deeper Dive:
The world of access is expanding in all dimensions and the demand on your identity infrastructure keeps growing.
With today’s business evolution, you’re not just securing enterprise applications—you also have to integrate with partner and SaaS applications, as well as cloud and web APIs. The populations you need to support are growing as well, and the rise in mobile devices and adoption of BYOD have made securing access across multiple devices and form factors the new normal.
But your current identity infrastructure is not meeting those challenges. You have a conglomeration of identity sources spread across different systems—everything from multiple AD domains and forests to Oracle/SUN, IBM, or Novell LDAP directories, and specific identity silos in SQL databases. The lack of identity integration yields brittle authentication, cumbersome sign-on, limited SSO support, inflexible authorization policies and delayed deployment—all slowing your business initiatives while challenging security and governance.
And it is not just about new applications. Due to intricate dependencies from existing applications, you face the high cost of licensing fees for directories that are often under-used, inflexible, and outdated. Discover how to replace aging directories with a fast and scalable solution for any given set of applications, as well as upgrade your infrastructure to a more flexible identity service to support federation, cloud, and new applications. With these best practices in place, you will be on your way to meeting the growing demands on your infrastructure—and putting a smile on your CFO’s face.
