Thanks for your comments,
I was reading through the posts and articles that are referenced,
From what I understood this was all a hybrid solutions, where there is a local AD connected to Azure AD
Is there a solution where you can connect servers directly to Azure AD or have i missed something
Natively windows 10 devices can join to azure ad
Also Windows server 2016 server can join to azure ad
For Windows 2008 R2, 2012 R2 you need onprem ad and adfs
