Cloud and Local Network Integration

One thing I like about Microsoft’s cloud solutions is the ability to integrate with the local network at the client’s site.

We’re recommending that even our smaller clients maintain a local server to act as a domain controller and redundant file server. The local domain’s Active Directory database can be synchronized with Microsoft’s Business Productivity Online Services (BPOS).

This means that companies can manage their user accounts locally and keep user accounts and permissions in sync with their cloud content and applications
