LMS 365 Infrastructure

lms365.jpg

 

LMS365 is a software solution that is developed to run natively on the Microsoft Office 365 and Azure platforms and follows all Microsoft recommended practices about Design and Development of the solution.

 

LMS365 is delivered out of Microsoft Azure data centers in the United States, Europe, and Asia Pacific regions closest to the location of your Office 365 tenant, in order to minimize the impact of network latency and/or comply with regional regulations.

 

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is Microsoft’s cloud-based identity and access management service, which helps your employees sign in and access:

  • External resources, such as Microsoft 365, the Azure portal, and thousands of other SaaS applications.

  • Internal resources, such as apps on your corporate network and intranet, along with any cloud apps developed by your own organization. For more information about creating a tenant for your organization.

 

SharePoint is a web-based collaborative platform that integrates with Microsoft Office. Launched in 2001, SharePoint is primarily sold as a document management and storage system, but the product is highly configurable, and usage varies substantially among organizations.

Groups can be created in Azure Active Directory:

There are 2 different types of groups:

  • Assigned
  • Dynamic (User/Device)

Assigned groups let you add specific users to be members of this group and to have unique permissions.

Dynamic groups let you use dynamic membership rules to automatically add and remove members. If a member's attributes change, the system looks at your dynamic group rules for the directory to see if the member meets the rule requirements (is added), or no longer meets the rules requirements (is removed).

 

Overview of Sites and Site Collections in SharePoint Server

A site collection is made up of one top-level site and all sites below it. As shown in the following figure, it is the top level of organization in a SharePoint Server web application. The number of site collections you can have in a single web application depends on the capacity of your server infrastructure.
