Microsoft Windows Server Active Directory® service is an enterprise-class directory service that is scalable, built using Internet-standard technologies and delivered with Microsoft Windows 2008 Server. It is the central point for isolating, migrating, centrally managing and reducing the number of directories found in a network. Using it can simplify management, strengthen security and increase interoperability. Even though not every organization will immediately implement Active Directory services when deploying Windows 2003 Server or Windows 2008 Server, the solution does offer many advantages, including:
- Active Directory Health Check
- Active Directory Design
- Active Directory Design Verification
- Group Policy Configuration
- Windows NT, 2000, and 2003 Migrations
- Novell Migrations
- Single Sign On Solutions
- Integration & Co-Existence with Unix / Novell
- Troubleshooting / Analysis
- Network Infrastructure (DNS, DHCP & WINS)
Features of Microsoft Active Directory
Active Directory helps to organize and integrate systems that aren't Windows-based and consolidate directories for easier management of the entire network. Doing this boosts the functionality of your existing network and lowers the overall cost of operations because it helps your current Windows network operate better with other systems. Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) can be used by your business for directory-enabled applications.
Many software applications have directory service functionality built into their applications. These narrowly-targeted directory services often lack standards-based interfaces, resulting in one network containing multiple directories that don't work together and have to be maintained separately. These disparate directory services often translate into a higher total cost of ownership, requiring greater management and more complex applications.
Active Directory provides a single point of management for Windows 2000, 2003, and 2008 Server user accounts, clients, servers and applications. It allows your organization to efficiently share and manage information about network resources or users. It can contain over one million objects of a business such as users, computers, printers and application programs.
Active Directory acts as the central authority for network security, letting your operating system verify a user's identity and control access to work resources. It can be used to securely extend systems to the Internet. Do you have a Domain Controller in locations where physical security cannot be guaranteed? Learn how our Active Directory consultants use Read-Only Domain Controllers in those locations. Do you need advanced auditing and controls? Learn how our Active Directory experts deploy Domain Services for advanced auditing capabilities to track changes in the Active Directory objects.
