We planning to use commercial DS to support arround 1000 users, we already
using many of oracle product (for erp and rdbms). any comments on Oracle DS?

Basicaly if openldap is like apache compare to other commercial webserver,
we'll choose apache.
but if openldap is like mysql compare to Oracle DB or jboss compare to Bea,
we'll choose the commercial product instead.
