We are debating setting up a private cloud for a customer.  We are debating using DA (Microsoft Direct Access) for this.

Thoughts on application and effectiveness of using DA for private cloud?

Thanks

hi cliff
   can you give a bit more detail of what you are trying to achieve.

 just to make an assumption - the customer has a separate Active directory domain with all services they want contained within it i.e. file servers, email servers etc
You want to give them remote access to their services

As long as there is an internet connection through to that system then Direct Access would be appropriate for single user access. Depending on your bandwidth would depend on how many users you would support connecting in this method.
If you have multiple users from one location then a site to site VPN would be a more appropriate method of connection.

That was what I was looking for...it seems DA is cool for a few users, but a "private cloud" built on DA does not seem the best way to go.

Thanks.
