What is x.500?

Post by Bob Ericks » Sun, 02 Aug 1992 02:18:00

I would like to learn more about x.500.
I've heard it referred to as a database system and
as "OSI's x.500 directory services for distributed directories".
The latter definition didn't give me a good handle on it.
Any descriptions, article references, etc. would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. Where is this group's FAQ?

Quote:>P.S. Where is this group's FAQ?

        This question has been asked several times recently. I had volunteered
        to develop a FAQ (last Spring!), but work pressure (>100 hours/week)
        has kept me from integrating the mess I started. I should return to
        the land of the living in 2-3 weeks and a few weeks later be able to
        come up with a prototype.

        - Sorry for the delay
        - Any volunteers to preview and correct my errors would be appreciated



1. DBMS selection for 500+GB and 500+users

We are in the process of selecting a database for our data warehouse.  It is
expected to start at 50GB of data with 50+ users and grow over the next 2
years to be 500+GB of data and 500+ users. Much of the data will be obtained
from our IBM mainframe  ADABAS operational databases on a daily basis.   We
are looking at Sybase, Informix and Oracle.  Does anyone have experiences
(good or bad) that might help with our decision.  In particular, how do
these products scale throught this type of growth.  Thanks
