HOW TO MOVE ACTIVE DIRECTORY TO THE CLOUD
Migrating or extending Active Directory domain services to your Cloud infrastructure can be a little overwhelming. Small organizations that have to replace an aging Small Business Server system often have many constraints and scenarios to consider. Amava has published a step-by-step guide which explains 2 common cases: Single Server Cloud AD and Hybrid Cloud AD.
HOW TO BUILD
YOUR ACTIVE DIRECTORY SOLUTION ON PERFORMANCE CLOUD
SINGLE SERVER CLOUD AD SCENARIO
YOU CAN GREATLY REDUCE YOUR UPFRONT COSTS WITH A MINIMAL OR OFF-PREMISES SERVER INFRASTRUCTURE.
THIS SCENARIO MIGHT APPLY TO YOUR BUSINESS IF:
You want to reduce local IT infrastructure to a minimum
You have little to no internal IT expertise and rely on your MSP for support
Your budget prevents the deployment of another local server
Your local computers are domain-joined and must continue authenticating to AD
Your application servers still leverage AD domain services (LDAP, DNS, NTLM/Kerberos Authentication)
Users must still be able to log on to their laptops when they take them home
Users must be able to log on to their computers if the site-to-site VPN is down
Low recurring cost
Reduced upfront costs
No local infrastructure to manage
Retain Active Directory capabilities (Central Authentication, GPO, RBAC)
Increased dependency on Internet connection and VPN
Increased troubleshooting complexity of authentication issues (requires Active Directory and DNS expertise)
WHAT IS ACTIVE DIRECTORY?
Active Directory is an umbrella term for a broad range of domain and identity management services under Windows Server operating systems. Active Directory identifies all information about the network, whether it’s users, systems or applications. It provides a directory of all networked resources and helps manage the users’ access to them.
