Hitachi ID Password Manager has been deployed in very large organizations, including:
- One password reset system supporting 750,000 students and parents in a school district and another supporting about 10,000,000 consumers.
- Internal corporate deployments with up to 500,000 users.
- Users distributed over six continents (nobody in Antarctica).
- A single Password Manager instance, running on a single server, managing passwords on over 3,200 stand-alone Unix systems.
This level of scalability is a result of many architectural features:
- Built-in, real-time database replication between servers (WAN-friendly, encrypted).
- Explicit support for multi-master, active-active, load-balanced configurations with cooperation between replica servers.
- Multi-threading operation of all components.
In addition, Password Manager incorporates many features that, while not directly performance-related, are needed to operate in large, complex networks:
- Compatibility with reverse web proxies, which can expose some or all of the Password Manager UI to less-trusted network segments (e.g., DMZ).
- A connector proxy server, which allows Password Manager to connect to target systems on isolated network segments.
- Support for multiple languages (including Unicode) per running instance.
- Auto-discovery of accounts and groups on integrated systems and applications.
