Sirius expands Open Source Identity portfolio to include Apache Directory

Bolsters 24 x 7 support offering with high availability

Sirius, the acclaimed Open Source System Integrator today announces the addition of Apache Directory to its suite of identity management solutions. “Sirius is well-known for its deployments of LDAP solutions for customers such as prominent high street retail brands” says Andrew Savory, Chief Technology Officer for Sirius. “Adding ApacheDS gives us an extensible and embeddable directory server that is a perfect fit for our enterprise customers”.

Customer interest in open identity management has increased with awareness that there are enterprise grade options which provide better functionality than proprietary solutions. “Our recent projects brought to light the increasing confidence among customers that they need to choose on the basis of long term scalability, and avoid vendor lock-in” says CTO Savory.

Apache Directory is part of the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) lineup. According to the original author of the Apache Directory Server, and Founder of the Apache Directory Project, Alex Karasulu, "I'm delighted to see more commercial support emerging for ApacheDS, but with the competency of Sirius support, I'm especially confident our users will receive the quality of service they need."

By including Apache Directory in the solution portfolio, Sirius is also extending its 24 x 7 support service. “High availability has become a mandatory business requirement, and an increasing number of our enquiries include 24 x 7 support requirements. Our ability to provide this assurance helps customers more easily compare open source options to traditional proprietary software,” says Kelly Taylor, Account Manager at Sirius.

The extended Sirius Identity Management suite was unveiled together with the Identity Management competition at the company’s riverside campus in Weybridge, Surrey.
