My directory service lives in cloud-cuckoo-land!
The world of IT is changing. A few years ago, directory servers were deployed on machines and left running for years without intervention (if ain’t broken, don’t touch it). Now customers want to deploy all their applications and middleware in a cloud, where containers would have a lifespan of days if not hours.
What does it mean for directory servers? In this presentation, I will cover how ForgeRock is building its Directory Services product to be running in the cloud, in any cloud.
