Innosoft has announced major enhancements to its Innosoft Directory Services suite. Version 5.0 of the Innosoft Distributed Directory Server has been updated with LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) 3.0 high-availability replication, so that if one master replication server fails, another is still able to replicate. Due at the end of next month, Version 5.0 ranges in price from $1,800 (#1,100) for 1,000 entries to $95,000 (#58,600) for 1 million entries, with customised pricing for entries in excess of 1 million. www.innosoft.com.
