TechVision ResearchMigrate and Modernize Your LDAP Directory with RadiantOne FID

In this webinar, Doug Simmons of TechVision and Wade Ellery of Radiant Logic discuss the challenges and strategies of migrating and evolving your legacy directories to meet both today’s IAM needs and those of the future.

Many large enterprises have security systems based on “legacy” LDAP directories (Oracle OUD, Sun, IBM TDS), which are now aging. Licensing and maintenance fees are spiraling out of control. But with multiple applications relying on this directory infrastructure for authenticating and authorizing users, companies have been stuck with the existing inflexible system: migrating directory configurations and their application dependencies is an expensive technical challenge. Compounding this problem is the extra demand from cloud and web-based applications and an ever-growing/changing user base with high expectations for secure and seamless user experience. As a result, companies are caught between a rock and a hard place. They need a way to migrate away from aging LDAPs without disruption, and evolve the infrastructure to deliver on those new expectations.

RadiantOne: An Innovative Way to Migrate, Evolve, and Replace Your Directory

Combining the best of meta and virtual directories—and including HDAP, the world’s most elastically scalable, cluster-based LDAP v3 directory—our federated identity and directory service, RadiantOne FID, empowers you to migrate away from aging LDAP seamlessly while offering a flexible platform for new initiatives.

RadiantOne FID has two parts: a virtualization layer and a directory storage. The virtualization layer integrates identity data for each user from all your disparate data sources into a complete authoritative source, enabling a global view of identities that can be modeled to meet the needs of any application at will. The virtualization layer makes it easy to inventory and intercept existing client application requests, and “reverse engineer” the views that will be required to meet the needs of those existing applications.

Once you have federated your identity, it is ready to be loaded into the directory of your choice. RadiantOne includes its own advanced storage layer, HDAP, a highly-available, extremely scalable LDAP v3-compatible directory that’s built on big data and search technology.


HDAP has more efficient block replication across the cluster nodes compared to the logical replication used by traditional LDAP directories, which gives HDAP better performance as the number of client connections increases.

In one step, RadiantOne accomplishes migration and replacement of your legacy directory with a modern federated identity service including a directory storage. As a performance and scalability powerhouse, HDAP gives your identity environment a much-needed injection of agility and flexibility, scaling elastically to millions of users and queries.
