Hi folks

At $WORKk we are having a  discusion about the scalability of different directory server products, and I thought I'd reach out and see anyone had any information that I could feed back into our dialogue.  There are three main points that i'm curious about, first the statement was made that Red Hat doesn't suggest RHDS 8.* for use in enterprise environments
This is not true.  Where did this information come from?
and instead suggests an LDAP server that uses or comes with Jboss (OpenDS or OpenLDAP maybe? I was a bit unclear on this point... ).
Also not true.  Where did this information come from?
Second, 389/RHDS is in fact just Sun Directory Server 5.0.
No, it is several generations ahead of Sun DS 5.0.  See http://directory.fedoraproject.org/wiki/History
And finally that RHDS/389 isn't compatible with the following products:

Weblogic 10g+

WebSphere 6+

OAM 10g/11g

OVD 11g

OIF 11gR3

OAAM 11g

OIM 11gR2

Sun IdM v6.1, 7.2, 8.1.1

Not sure about this.  We don't certify with these, but if they work with standard LDAPv3 servers, they should work with RHDS/389.

I'd really like to be able to provide some constructive feedback to my collages, since the feels like a matter of misunderstanding and an opportunity to educate  each other. 

Thanks in advance for any feedback!
