A stable solution for single sign-on and role-based permissions

What is our primary use case?

This tool is a way for data centers to secure their connectivity. My primary use case for this product is to synchronize with the LDAP server, and allow single sign-on, role-based access.

Pros and Cons

  • "I would rate the solution's stability eight or nine out of ten."
  • "The high availability architecture has to be improved."

What other advice do I have?

This is a really good, open source product. I would suggest purchasing a subscription for technical support. It is a lightweight program, and the documentation is sufficient. However, there are specific features that you may want to use, and for this you may need full, in-depth support when it comes time to deploy. Once you purchase the subscription, it is like a perpetual license. You can do everything yourself. I would rate this product eight out of ten. Other than the small improvements that I have suggested, it is a very good solution.

A comprehensive ecosystem but very difficult to setup and configure

Pros and Cons

  • "Comprehensive ecosystem."
  • "I found the initial setup to be very complex."

What other advice do I have?
