In this session we present OpenLDAP/back-ndb which gives an LDAP interface to MySQL Cluster. We will look at how the LDAP model is realized in MySQL Cluster and how to get started using LDAP.

Using Cluster as the LDAP backend makes it very easy to scale out an LDAP solution. Instead of using replication you can scale by adding more LDAP servers in front of the Cluster.

Other benefits with LDAP on MySQL Cluster is that the data can be accessed in many different ways: SQL, LDAP, mod-ndb, NDBAPI etc etc! Simultaneously!

This makes Cluster a powerful platform for converging different data sources.
