With a larger push from companies to migrate to the cloud, I have been asked to put together a BLOG series on how to deploy a Single Sign-On solution for Office365 into Windows Azure.
The next series of posts are a step-by-step series on how to deploy a highly available AD FS 3.0 solution in Windows Azure for single sign-on with Office365. The posts detail the process of setting up Windows Azure for this purpose, deploying the servers, configuring AD FS 3.0, configuring the Web Application Proxies (AD FS proxy servers) and then making the whole thing load balanced.
There are a number of considerations that you need to make before deploying this solution. Please read and educate yourself using this TechNet article.
My BLOG Series
- Setting up the Primary AD FS 3.0 Server in Windows Azure for Office365 Single Sign-On
- Setting up the Secondary AD FS 3.0 Server in Windows Azure for Office365 Single Sign-On
- Securing the AD FS 3.0 servers and Configuring Azure ACLs for WAP Communications
- Setting up the First Web Application Proxy Servers (AD FS Proxy) in Windows Azure for Office365 Single Sign-On
- Setting up the Second Web Application Proxy Server (AD FS Proxy) in Windows Azure for Office365 Single Sign-On
- Configure Endpoints and Test the Web Application Proxy Servers (Load-Balanced Set in Windows Azure) for Office365 Single Sign-On
