Messaging software specialist Isocor is lining up a new version of its GDS Global Directory Server for release before the end of the year, to be followed in the first quarter of 1998 by a Meta-Directory Database Connector. GDS v2.1 is the latest version of Isocor’s enterprise and inter-enterprise directory server, supporting both the LDAP lightweight directory access protocol and X.500 directory services. Isocor says it’s aimed at companies, telecommunications providers and government agencies who want to manage mission-critical intranet/extranet applications from a distributed information repository. GDS provides a single view of distributed data from multiple directory sources and features enhancements that Isocor hopes will put it on the path to fulfill its aim of becoming one of the leading meta-directory suppliers. Key GDS features include a single view of directory information that can be securely distributed across multiple systems, domains and locations, single directory user profiles developed from multiple data sources and software agents that simplify connection to public or private directories. It also offers automatically synchronized consolidation of third-party messaging and directory products, system-wide multi-level user access controls and a remote access supporting management tool. GDS v2.1 is scheduled to be available for Sun Solaris and Windows NT before the end of the year with prices dependent on the platform and number of directory entries. Typical examples are $14,500 for 10,000 entries up to $300,000 for 1,000,000. The Meta-Directory Database connector will provide integration between information stored on relational databases such as Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server and GDS, and will be available for Windows NT in the first quarter of 1998.
