I currently look after the IT for a small company that has two smaller offices elsewhere.
I now have the opportunity to redesign their IT structure from scratch and am looking for alternatives to consider.
They currently run a Windows 2012 server at head office and use a synch program to provide local copies of the server files at the branch offices.
They also use hosted Exchange.
Head office Internet is not particularly fast, but better in the remote offices.
I am considering replacing the main server and supplementing it with two servers in the branches.
Should I use Active Directory for all authentication or should I be considering a cloud based alternative?
