A year ago, Optimal IdM released a special version of its virtual directory just for SharePoint (VIS for SharePoint). At that time it was specifically for SharePoint 2007, and to date has be an overwhelming success. Our customers that are using the product have been raving about the simplicity of the product and the cost savings that have been realized.
Now with the upcoming release of SharePoint 2010, we have stayed on top of each release from Microsoft, including the most recent release candidate (SharePoint 2010 RC). We are pleased to say that VIS for SharePoint (2010 RC), is fully operational and we are looking to support the final version when it is released to market (which we hope will be soon).
As such, Optimal IdM remains the true leader in SharePoint deployments across multiple back-end data stores including:
- Multiple AD domains/forests (yes, with a single SharePoint deployment)
- Multiple LDAP types (AD, AD-LDS/ADAM, Sun, etc.)
- Multiple data sources (SQL, Oracle, etc.), which can be used to make SharePoint security decisions from
All of this in real-time or near real-time. Virtual Identity Server (VIS) is still the only true Microsoft centric and Microsoft friendly virtual directory vendor on the market.
