You will find quite a number of reasons why many organizations these days find it very important to use a virtual directory server into their environment. Generally, it helps in decreasing IT costs. It is known that most organizations right now do not possesses a single and centralized AD forest or domain. Such several directories have existed for a whole lot of reasons such as the safety regulations of the business and its acquisitions or mergers as well.

This results only into huge challenge for the IT department that must deploy applications and information to users that exist in various siloed directories. This form of complications apparent in most companies is getting resolved through the use of virtual directory. This is because the virtual directory gives merged and consolidated views of information from the separate directories and this is possible without any forest trusts.

So how does a virtual directory server helps in reducing IT costs? Generally, the virtual directory helps you in deploying applications directory all over the many LDAP directories. This will then help lessen or eliminate the need to synchronize passwords as well as other data across the LDAP directories. In addition, it also helps in reducing complexity in identity management deployment through direct data access from its source.

A virtual directory can also help your organizations in meeting with the guidelines on audit and compliance. It also has complete audit logging of all the activities that took place within your environment. In this case, the LDAP operations are being logged and saved into the Microsoft SQL server database to have an way of retrieving and reporting of data. This way, you will be informed the users who logged into your directories, once they logged in and also informs you if there happen to be changes carried out during that time.

Through the LDAP proxy feature that the virtual directory has, you will have the ability to enhance or boost the control and security received by your environment. This means that the virtual directory doesn't only help you obtain consolidated view of data but also serves as LDAP proxy or firewall at the same time.
