Thanks in Advance!
I have a customer that has a very small environment with 1 windows server with AD on it. (about 10-15 users and most of them remote).
They don't have the funds for a second DC, currently, i have backups of file level and am using windows server backup for image backups.
was thinking about this scenario but wanted to run it by the experts to get their thoughts on it: would like to create an Active directory server in the cloud that can, 1. sync with the onprem AD (so we have a copy of ACTIVE Directory in the cloud). or 2. sync once a day while firing up the cloud server to allow syncing and then turn it off---to save on cost--incase cost is an issue. 3. have a scenario where the remote users can authenticate and not use cached profiles (besides using vpn).
question on the above scenario: I'm sure Im not the first one thinking about this scenario---wanted to get your thoughts on how you guys are handling it for small businesses.
