Azure Active Directory Resources

One of the new trends in modern IT is consolidating your footprint of on-premises services you provide to the organization. For many organizations, moving those workloads to the cloud or leveraging existing cloud based services for a workload you used to do on-premises can save costs, and cut complexity out of your IT operational portfolio. The primary workload for many that is identity services such as Active Directory and to extend (or migrate) to either Azure Active Directory, Azure Active Directory Domain Services, or simply migrate your Active Directory Domain Controllers to Azure Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).

This blog will provide you a list of Microsoft resources that you may find useful in your journey of extending or moving Active Directory to the cloud. If you have comments/feedback or come across a resource that I don't have listed below – please let me know in the comments section. Enjoy!
