Using GCP Managed Active Directory to simplify domain authentication

By SADA Engineering

Organizations of nearly all sizes likely have an Active Directory domain of some sort. These range from a small number of Windows servers or desktops to the largest enterprises with thousands of servers. They might be simple configurations with just a few domain controllers, or incredibly complex configurations with multiple sites, clusters, and different types of domain controllers. All types of organizations consider it a critical piece of infrastructure for their Authentication, Authorization, and Auditing (AAA) platform.

Any number of internal and external enterprise self-hosted or Software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications and hardware appliances (for example, storage arrays) can integrate with and rely on AD for authenticating access to the application and its data.
