Therapure Biopharma (Therapure) is a specialist in biologics, research and drug manufacturing. Extending its Active Directory (AD) to the Cloud via Azure allowed Therapure to easily expand its IT as the company was expanding.
An Azure tenant was created to hold a virtual AD Replica Server.
• Improved Network Resource Access: An AD in the Cloud allowed Therapure to access network resources anywhere.
• Increased Redundancy: Azure allowed the new AD to be replicated to two datacentres that ensured the AD would be available at all times.
• Potential Reduced Cost: Migrating AD to Azure showed Therapure how powerful Azure could be for cost savings. Future servers could live in the Cloud so that Therapure would not have to pay for expensive physical servers. With Azure AD’s, Therapure can pay an hourly charge based on the size of its directory.
