Since the AADDS preview started I’ve been questioned several times during demonstrations of AAD/AADS/EMS scenarios why my tenants are always in US West, not in AustraliaEast or AustraliaSouthEast, and the primary reason was because the AADDS preview wasn’t available in the local datacenters. In a post on the Active Directory Team Blog they mention Australian DC availability, as well as other enhancements that have rolled into the preview, including…
- Secure LDAP access
- Custom OU support
- Administer DNS for your managed domain
- Domain join for Linux VM’s (no, that is not a typo!)
Check the links above for more details, but the Aus DC availability is something I’m extremely happy to see.
