It is often easier to deploy several radius servers which are less efficient
than to design one that is far more complicated but more efficient. We
routinely process tens of radius requests/s and our Radius setup is very
I would advise against making very much mission critical systems too

For an ISP environment, LDAP is far superior to anything NIS/NIS+ can offer.
It's faster, more versatile, it integrates very well with other environments
and it also scales very well.
