Previously called SKADS
, then later called eDirectory
. NDS 8 refers to the newest major revision of Novell Directory Services
. NDS 8 was rewritten sizeably--the old version used essentially flat files
(well, linked list
files) to store directory information, and NDS 8 has a full-fledged database
beneath it, so it's much more scalable
than previous NDS
has demostrated up to 1 billion
objects in the directory. Cool.
NDS is neat stuff, and everyone should use it.
