For those who haven't been following along, support for
(memory-mapped database) library is also available for several other
open source projects, including Cyrus SASL (sasldb mech), Heimdal
Kerberos (hdb module), SQLite3, OpenDKIM, and MemcacheDB. A
work-in-progress patch for Postfix is also available, with a final
version coming soon. A backend for SQLite4 is also in the works. A port
of Android (JellyBean) for the Motorola Droid4 using MDB/SQLite3 is in
progress (since my current phone is a Droid4).
Other projects are also in progress and will be announced in the near
future. The current list is also posted on
- feel free to suggest other projects.
OpenLDAP MDB completely outclasses other embedded databases (like Oracle
BerkeleyDB, Google LevelDB, SQLite, Kyoto Cabinet) from every angle:
performance, efficiency, reliability, administrative ease, simplicity,
whatever. With MDB not only have we made the world's fastest LDAP server
even faster, but we can also make anything else that uses a database
I'll also be presenting an updated talk on MDB at LinuxCon Europe in
Barcelona, November 7.
