Users in Europe, however, are reporting that AD FS logon times are poor when connected to the company network.
To improve response time and overall performance, an additional farm in the Azure region UK South is deemed necessary.
Let’s look at a hypothetical AD FS scenario using Azure VMs.Our farm is located in Azure region US East and two AD FS farm nodes are configured behind an Azure internal load balanced virtual IP of 1.5.On the Internet facing side, we have a pair of Web Application Proxies (WAP) connected to an Azure Internet load balancer (these are not germane to this discussion). hello Demonstrates creation of a simple window, "hello world". latffp Shows how to access the Motorola Fast Floating Point library from Lattice C.
