Delivering Scalable & Highly Available Authentication & Accounting Services

This whitepaper discusses the concepts of current data storage solutions for Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) environments and their potential limitations as network use grows and services become more dynamic.

The paper then presents an alternative deployment scenario based on the FreeRADIUS Server and MySQL Cluster serving as the back-end AAA database, providing an infrastructure for high growth and availability, with low complexity. A sizing study and user case study are presented to demonstrate how the solution performs in real-world AAA environments

Check out the second whitepaper in this series entitled "Deploying FreeRADIUS with the MySQL Cluster Database" to learn how to implement this solution in your own environment
