Hey TLG and public cloud technology fans,
Prolific TLG author Bill Mathers just published two new TLGs:
- Test Lab Guide: Creating a Windows Azure AD and Windows Server AD Environment This TLG configures Directory Synchronization (DirSync) with password synchronization between the CORP AD DS domain and an instance of Windows Azure AD based on a trial subscription.
- Test Lab Guide: Implementing SSO with Windows Azure and Windows Server AD This TLG configures DirSync with single sign-on (SSO) between the CORP AD DS domain and Windows Azure AD, using Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS).
These two new TLGs join the recently published Configuring an Office 365 Trial Subscription TLG in forming the new Public Cloud TLG stack, which leverages the Windows Server 2012 public cloud base configuration and allows you to build out and demonstrate key functionality for Office 365 and Windows Azure. This is very cool, cutting-edge stuff!
Here is the new Public Cloud TLG stack (click on it for a larger version):
And more are on the way…
To keep track of all these new TLGs for Microsoft public cloud technologies, I have published the new Public Cloud Test Lab portal page in the TechNet Wiki. With this stack, TLGs have officially joined the cloud space, in addition to serving their tradition role for on-premises Microsoft products and technologies.
For more information about TLGs, see Test Lab Guides.
