"Quick and easy domain services on the cloud"

What do you like best?

Azure Active Directory Domain Services provide a quick and easy way to manage your devices and deployments from the cloud without the need to deploy domain controller. It provides a lot of cool features such as AD domain join, easy deployment, SSO, group policy, and LDAP.

What do you dislike?

Some of the features prefer a cloud-based infrastructure and to me that seems to be where most of the technologies are heading to in the future anyway.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Feel free to reach out to Microsoft if you need support before implementing the services as they have been always there to help.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One of the biggest advantages from having Azure Active Directory Domain Services is the AD domain join and SSO support, as well as the easy integration with Azure AD.

"The greatest IAM product since its inception"

You can use LDAP, Azure Active Directory domain join, NTLM, and Kerberos authentication. Also, you can manage Azure virtual machines effectively using Group Policy. This service tenant is a managed, highly-available service.

Although you can get started in minutes and pay as you go the more features you need will increase the costs so be sure to understand the total cost.

"An excellent Cloud AD"

What do you like best?

It is an excellent piece of tool to work with when you need to manage access control, users, content policy and authentication. Good to manage and the best thing is that it receives frequent software patches.

It sometimes creates issues when running on a MacOS since its compatible to Windows AD. So, if you have your application management on Windows AD policy, its difficult to sync over Mac.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been running this virtual machine for multiple projects and works well with MS Azure website deployment. Easy integration.

"Azure AD - Great when rolled out properly. "

What do you like best?

The positives first. Azure AD can be used to log into my work laptop from any network, while still providing the security of or domain. It works seamlessly with Windows 10, which is great. Our only issue came from trying to roll it out slowly. It just showed up on some of our computers, leaving some of our employees to freak out, because they weren't set up on Azure yet and couldn't log in without changing the domain.

What do you dislike?

Like I said above, sometimes it attaches itself to devices on the domain that weren't ready for it, which causes a panic when people can't log in.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Primarily, most of our employees enjoy the freedom of logging into our domain from anywhere.
