Remembering Distributed Name and Directory Services

Since it came up in conversation today, I'm trying to remember the distributed naming and directory services that have gone by. Some are still with us.

  • Novell NDS
  • NeXT Netinfo
  • Sun NIS
  • Sun NIS+
  • LDAP
  • DNS
  • Active Directory

I'll add more as I think of them.
