Differences are who can be members, where they can be assigned,  instead of writing it all out just look at this table which shows it all

Well the differences are laid out in the tables;  on thing I'd suggest is don't go crazy with the group nesting.  I see people nesting globals into domain locals even in single domains.   Use group nesting only when necessary, don't want to end up with token bloat (many group memberships assigned to an object)


Thanks

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.
