  • 1.  Oracle Database or CA Directory for Siteminder Policy and Session Store ?

    Posted Sep 06, 2022 01:49 PM
    Hi guys,

    What configuration would be better for a Siteminder implementation for aproximative 4000 concurent logins and around 10.000.000 users?

    We can use
    * oracle database cluster instance, but on the same oracle server we have IDM, UIM, AA also. We have 2 nodes
     * CA Directory. We have 4 nodes here and on each of them will be at least one instance for user store for IDM.

    Siteminder will be use only for authentication using openid  implementation, Siteminder is Openi ID Provider.

    Hi Bogdan,

    Symantec (CA) Directory is a great choice for SiteMinder user, policy, and session stores. It has very high performance capability and will support your environment with the proper architecture & performance tuning. As you're probably aware, using SiteMinder as an OpenID Provider will require a session store and Symantec Directory is the only certified x.500 / LDAP directory supported.

    Using Symantec Directory as a SiteMinder Policy, Session, and Key Stores requires no additional license.

    Thanks,
    Warren

    Hi Warren,

    Thank you for response. I decided to go with CA Directory for Siteminder stores.

    In addition to what you mentioned, I also took into account the fact that the CA Directory is under my management and we have 6 nodes for the production server, compared to 2 for the database
