Join David Elfassy for an in-depth discussion in this video Azure Active Directory vs. Active Directory Domain Services, part of Learn Microsoft Azure: Active Directory.
- [Voiceover] I mentioned in a previous video…that there are multiple flavors of Active Directory,…some are hosted in Azure and some are hosted on premises.…So in this video we will look at what the difference…is between Azure Active Directory…and Active Directory on premise.…Active Directory on premise is again…the flavor of Active Directory,…which is available with Window Server.…Active Directory on premise was introduced many years ago…in the days of Windows NT…as a domain directory listing.…
Windows 2000 brought us Active Directory…and has evolved all the way…to the latest version on Windows Server,…Windows Server 2016,…which still builds on the Active Directory functionalities.…In Azure Active Directory we now have a new way…to perform authentication and identity management.…So let's look at some of these differences.…First of all, when we deploy Active Directory on premise…we typically deploy various Active Directory roles.…Now Active Directory comes in many different components,…or there are many different components…
Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) provides most of the rich functionalities of Active Directory, with the conveniences of cloud-based computing. Azure AD also offers developers a great way to integrate identity management into applications. In this Azure training course, David Elfassy introduces the terminology and feature set in Azure AD. He shows how to implement and manage user and group accounts, join client computers, and implement single sign-on and multifactor authentication. (Industry standard protocols such as SAML 2.0, WS-Federation, and OpenID Connect makes sign-on possible on a variety of platforms.) In the final chapters of the course, David reviews the more advanced reporting and features in Azure AD and Azure AD Connect, including syncing on-premise Active Directory and Azure AD.
