In this episode of the Azure AD and Identity Show, your host, Simon May of Microsft talks to Mahesh Unnikrishnan of the Identity Division about Azure AD Domain Services. Your organization easily enable domain services capabilities, such as domain join, for Azure IaaS VMs without having to build and manage Windows Domain Controllers in Azure IaaS.
Azure Active Directory Domain Services provide scalable, high-performance, managed domain services such as domain-join, LDAP, Kerberos, Windows Integrated Authentication and Group Policy support. With a click of a button, administrators can enable managed domain services for virtual machines and directory-aware applications deployed in Azure Infrastructure Services.
