Benefits of The Optimal Cloud

Reduced I.T. Costs

The OptimalCloud integrates with our Virtual Identity Server to provide authentication and authorization from any data store (LDAP, Active Directory, database, etc.). and as a private, federated cloud broker, it increases the value of your existing Microsoft environment:

– VIS leverages the existing investment in Microsoft technology, extending it with increased functionality.

– VIS is developed in .NET technology and is designed to seamless integrate with your Microsoft environment.

– VIS is a platform that continues to grow with an organization’s needs.

– VIS has proven solutions for Microsoft applications such as SharePoint and MIIS/ILM.

Eliminate Deployment Barriers

One of the key benefits of using the OptimalCloud IDaaS product is scalability. OptimalCloud scales horizontally or vertically to meet the needs of enterprise deployments. With VIS, it has built-in connection pooling and full support for failover and load balancers. It also has other beneficial features:

– VIS can be placed behind a load balancer (hardware or software) to provide robust failover/redundancy for applications connecting to VIS.

– VIS scales either horizontally or vertically to meet the demanding needs of enterprise deployments.

– VIS offers robust caching options, allowing you to cache objects on a connection by connection basis or even objectclass basis. Objects can have a cache size limit and a time limit or both.

Meet Audit and Compliance Initiatives

The OptimalCloud provides complete IDaaS functionality that can help you answer questions such as:

– Who has logged in and when?

– What changes were made to data and when?

– Who was added to the Administrators group today?

– What changes did “Bob” make?

Directory Integration

There is no need to waste time consolidating data.

The OptimalCloud can instantly authenticate and surface identity data from multiple-forests and any identity stores setting Optimal IdM above most traditional Identity as a Service providers.


Directory Integration

The OptimalCloud integrates with our Virtual Identity Server to provide authentication and authorization from any data store (LDAP, Active Directory, database, etc.). With it, there is no need to waste time consolidating data — The OptimalCloud can instantly authenticate and surface identity data from any Active Directory source, including multi-forest databases and identity stores. In fact, some of our customers have hundreds of Active Directory forests. We can even provide a blended merged view of a user with data coming from multiple data sources.

Cloud Directory

The OptimalCloud also includes our cloud-based virtual directory. The cloud directory is a great place to host your external identities such as customers or partners. You no longer need to manage an on-premise directory for these users. Using the web portal, you can easily manage the users, groups, entitlements and more from one easy-to-use interface.

Quick & Easy Deployment

The OptimalCloud is a quick and easy deployment. We provide complete white glove service, creating the private cloud tenant and installing the on premise software as well.  Your private cloud in days, not months.

Real-Time Sync

If you are in hybrid mode, The OptimalCloud LDAP service will instantly and securely synch new users to the cloud that are created on-premise. As changes occur to the on-premise users and groups, these changes are synched as well.  This ensures the OptimalCloud is always up to date.

Lost Revenue Due To Downtime

Information Week shed light on a 2011 study  done by CA Technologies which attempted to provide an estimate of what downtime costs businesses on a broad scale. Of 200 surveyed businesses across the USA and Europe, they found that a total of $26.5 Billion USD is lost each year due to IT downtime. That’s an average of about $55,000 in lost revenue for smaller enterprises, $91,000 for midsize organizations, and over $1 million+ for large companies.
