Riddle me this, is this even possible.

Here is the scenario:

New startup company wants everything in the cloud, no hardware onsite except PC's/Laptops/Printers.

Is there a way to have an Active Directory server that is hosted in the cloud talk with the exisiting Office 365 and have 2 factor authentication?

Something tells me it could be possible but I can only find info for two factor authentication only if we have an AD box on premise.

Appreciate an assist.

Got it figured out.....

We can use MS Azure to host the DC and it will get along with Office 365 as well.

I talked with other engineers with some large providers and they had no clue that this could be done.

I wouldn't mind investigating this as well. Azure... hmm... worth looking into. I wonder what other options there are also.

If you go with Azure, let me know how it goes.

Any virtually hosted DC can DirectorySync to Office365. Syncing passwords is the tricky thing.
