Private cloud RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are designing private cloud for customer. (This is not 0365 cloud) It will be a hosted private cloud and will have multiple tenants because of some business requirement.

    1. What all options are available to extend existing AD in private cloud ? One option that we can see is to deploy Additional DC in cloud. OR can se use DirSync for this.. is DirSync+ADFS supported for this kind of scenario?

    2. How do we create federation between these multiple tenants?

    Please share a link which specifically answers these scenarios.

  • Are you using Windows Azure Pack for creating your multi-tenant private cloud environment?

    You may have to use AD + ADFS + FIM to support Tenant Active Directory and Identity Management

  • No, we are not using Azure Pack.

    What option are available when we use and when we Dont use azure pack ?

    Where AD+ADFS+FIM need to be placed ? Onprem or in cloud ?

    When you say FIM, does it mean using only DirSync or other features of FIM ?

  • Hi,

    Sorry for the delay reply.

    Windows Azure Pack for Windows Server is a collection of Windows Azure technologies, available to Microsoft customers at no additional cost for installation into your data center. It runs on top of Windows Server 2012 R2 and System Center 2012 R2 and, through the use of the Windows Azure technologies, enables you to offer a rich, self-service, multi-tenant cloud, consistent with the public Windows Azure experience.

    If you want to use Azure Pack, you could ask in:

    Meanwhile, FIM means Forefront Identity Manager, it is used to FIM+AAD Connector to connect to Azure AD

    For this, i think you may ask in Azure AD forums:
