Re: Suitability of LDAP as DNS backend - PowerDNS LDAP backend moving to unmaintained status

The recommended architecture with bind sdb_ldap for use with a high query load is that a named running sdb_ldap be set up as a "hidden" master, with the slaves running traditional file-backed zones to serve DNS clients.
This architecture makes sense! This should be practically the only
architecture to implement when using BIND with SDB or DLZ, and it makes
it worthwhile (with some added complexity).
Still, PowerDNS works very well with the LDAP backend even when serving
clients directly, it has an easy setup, great security record, and it
can simplify the DNS infrastructure considerably (by using only LDAP
replication), so I still urge any interested parties (developers,
companies through funding), to engage in its maintenance!
