    Hi,

     

    For a Gateway deployment on MS Azure using the Gateway image for Azure, would we need to make any special considerations for some of the components or will it all be similar to an on premise installation. For instance:

    1. If we plan to use the MySQL database, do we need to have master-master replication kind of a set up enabled to account for HA.

    2. Similarly for DR, we maintain an additional copy of the data from the secondary node ?

    3. Is it possible to run the set up in an active-active mode across 2 regions

    4. Can we use Azure AD for identity management or is it preferred to use a service like ADFS to authenticate against on-prem AD and have SSO as well enabled.
