Samba for the 100,000 user enterprise: are we there yet?

C1 | Mon 21 Jan | 2:25 p.m.–2:45 p.m.

Presented by

  • Andrew Bartlett

    Andrew Bartlett is a Samba developer and has been at the forefront of Samba's Active Directory DC effort since the Samba4 effort started in 2003. Andrew now leads a Samba development team for Catalyst in Wellington, New Zealand


For a number of years Andrew Bartlett has given presentations along the lines of 'the road to 100k users', and this so in part, this is another update on that long road. But it is also a milestone, because in the past year Samba has successfully added 124,000 users to the DB in a 4-hour benchmark, re-targeted to LMDB and successfully stood up a second replicated domain controller at the 100,000 user scale. Beyond scale, Andrew Bartlett will also update the audience on the many other new features coming up in Samba 4.10.
