Microsoft Identity – What’s the Difference with AD on Premises to Azure AD?

In this installment of Microsoft Identity tidbits, Ryan of @MSCQF and I speak about Azure Active Directory and how it’s different from Windows Server Active Directory. We look at some of the confusion around hosting a virtual machine in Azure that is running Windows Server Active Directory and using Azure AD Connect to extend that into Azure Active Directory. Join us for a few minutes of fun and discovery as we explore the differences in Active Directory types.

Azure AD Connect – Starting Out Considerations

I’ve been talking a lot about Identity lately, and the most common configuration is a hybrid setup that utilizes the best of both worlds! I’m talking about Windows Server Active Directory for your on-premises and Azure Active Directory for your Microsoft cloud…this is the most common because it allows for local servers and resources, easy identity management, and extended identities into the cloud where you can layer on SaaS applications and other awesome things like Microsoft 365.
