The Forgotten Gem: LDAP
I keep wanting a "configuration lookup service" with the following properties:
Optimized for a read-heavy workload (config stays the same for months).
Hierarchical structure (by data center, by server group, by specific host if necessary).
Queryable at any level.
From what I understand, it looks like this LDAP was practically designed for this. But I've never seen anyone use it for anything but user accounts, which seems like kind of a waste.
