Microsoft claimed it has demonstrated its Active Directory services managing millions of objects, as rival Novell prepares to show its flagship Novell Directory Services (NDS) controlling one billion objects.
Novell last week said it would demonstrate NDS version 8 handling one billion objects at its user conference in Utah beginning on Sunday. This week, Microsoft said Active Directory could handle 16 million in recent tests on Compaq's four CPU Alphaserver 4100, with 2Gbytes of memory.
The Redmond giant also claimed that in tests with networking specialist, Cisco, Active Directory could handle 5,000 queries per second across seven million objects that were generated from 100 clients.
