1.6 Applicability Statement

Active Directory is not suitable for storing very large attribute values because, for instance, there is no provision for check-pointing a large data transfer to allow restart after a failure. The bandwidth and latency of typical networks makes Active Directory unsuitable for storing volatile data in replicated attributes. Active Directory is especially suitable for storing security account data, including passwords, and email address book data.
