Career change

by Marin Franković on 4 October, 2014

MSFT_logo_pngAfter almost 11 years at Algebra and College University Algebra, I got unique opportunity to be part of large organization and to focus all my knowledge and ability on two of today most propulsive industry, cloud and mobility. As of 1.10.2014. I joined Microsoft as Technology Solution Professional for Datacenter, and I will be responsible for private, hybrid and public cloud scenarios related to data center such as backup, replication, networking and so on.

I am very happy that I can contribute to this new wave of services and to be able to learn from the source. As consequence to this I am no longer MVP and I no longer lead IT Pro UG Zagreb. Please visit for more info.

You can contact me via my phone number, private mail address or corporate one.

This tutorial will not cover on how to enable federation with local AD, but rather on how to deploy AD in Azure and RDS in Azure and how to connect to it. Everything here describer falls under current Microsoft licensing model.

  • 1 virtual machine that will server as Domain Controller
  • 1 virtual machine that will serve as RD Session Host, RD Connection Broker, RD Web Access and RD Licensing (this is not recommended implementation scenario but for this particular demo it works)
