OpenLDAP: Replace your Windows domain controller

Are you worried the five or ten year old domain controller on your Windows network is going to refuse to turn on one day, leaving your organization with a large bill for a brand new server, with having to buy the latest version of Windows, with all the closed-source software you’ll need like anti-virus and file backup systems that can run into the tens of thousands? Break out of your Windows-controlled network with a Linux-based OpenLDAP server, a drop-in replacement for your primary domain controller.

That’s right, Microsoft doesn’t own a patent on domain control. OpenLDAP is just one of the several completely free and open source platforms that power a Linux-based primary domain control solution that we can deploy on any network.

Installation & Setup

We have the expertise to install and deploy OpenLDAP on your small or medium sized network without any hassle, including the migration of your Windows-based domain users and groups.

Free Virtualization

Why not virtualize your primary domain controller for added network integrity? We can handle the deployment of your new PDC to any of a number of free and open source virtualization platforms.

Network Auditing

We can audit your network setup to ensure the efficient distribution of network resources and identify key resources to be replaced with stable, completely free and open source solutions. This is the perfect time to make your network more stable & efficient.

Support & Training

We can train your IT staff the usage of OpenLDAP and any other tools used in the deployment process, such as a virtualization platform. We also offer tiered email, instant chat, or 24-hours telephone support services. Ask us about our support packages.

OpenLDAP Rocks!

OpenLDAP is an open source replacement for your Windows domain controller. Since OpenLDAP is community maintained, you’ll never have to worry about a lack of support for the system. Deploy OpenLDAP on virtually any server-class system and virtualize it to minimize downtime.
