    Please specify the following:

    • Do you federate Exchange and ADFS directly for OWA, or do you have an Exchange Online environment and your AD FS to for all Office 365 workload, not only Exchange.

    Federation with all office 365 workload

    • What version of AD FS are you using?

    ADFS 2016

    • Is there any reason why you want to still use AD FS as opposed as other authentication methods which do not have the same challenges in terms of high availability?

    According security regulation , The security process should happen in Onprmise

    By "security process" you mean authentication I suppose? PTA offers a way to keep the authentication on-premises without having to maintain an AD FS infrastructure: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/hybrid/how-to-connect-pta

    If you want to stay with AD FS, you can add multiple AD FS and WAP server to a farm. We do publish some guidance on how to install a part on that in Azure to increase your availability, you might want to have a look there:

    You might also want to consider monitoring the AD FS servers with Azure AD Connect Health agents: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/hybrid/how-to-connect-health-adfs.
