It's a reality that many businesses and organizations are deploying numerous directory services in their program and even if this seemed to be an efficient operational practice, this actually has some downside into it. To begin with, it could lead to spreading the user identity information across the different directory repositories. Because of this, it becomes difficult for a business when they try to set up enterprise applications to the users which are present in these directories. The most effective answer for this is the use of virtual directory.

So how does a virtual directory helps in resolving this problem? Basically, a virtual directory works by providing a single consolidated view of information from the many directories. In fact, data can be joined in real time and this can be done without having to duplicate or replicate LDAP objects. Additionally, the virtual directory server may also merge these information that come from LDAP directories and SQL databases.

The best factor about using a virtual directory within your surroundings is it is developed to integrate with tightly and leverage the existing investment being made in Active Directory and Microsoft infrastructure. This means that it is written completely in Microsoft .NET managed code and contains seamlessly, extending the functionality of AD and provides the virtual directory, LDAP proxy and firewall that organizations require. When it comes to choosing the right virtual directory you can use for your organization, it's important to make sure that you get a product totally certified on Windows Server 2003 as well as 2008.

There are definitely a lot of advantages that using this virtual directory can provide to your organization. Apart from providing a merged view in real time of multiple information stores, it also helps organizations get rid of getting to expand the AD schema for applications. In addition to that, custom third party schema as well as information is saved in the virtual layer. So if your organization deploys not only one but many directory services, it's advised to use virtual directory to get consolidated view of information from these different directory repositories.
