93 C H A P T E R 4 | Networking The downside of this approach is that we were not able to include all of the functionality we wanted to have—functionality that would make it possible for all customers to move from Threat Management Gateway and Unified Access Gateway to the new solution. However, now that we have built a solid foundation, it is easier to add more functionality to make Web Application Proxy the obvious choice to publish on-premises resources such as Microsoft SharePoint, Lync, and Exchange to remote users. This version marks an important milestone in the journey we started quite a few years ago. Now, it is time for us to start another journey to bring remote access to the cloud era. We have created Azure Active Directory Application Proxy as another tool for customers to publish applications in cloud-based solutions. Fortunately, Web Application Proxy in Windows Server and Azure Active Directory Application Proxy share a lot of code. More than that, they share the same concepts and perception of remote access and how to make it simple to deploy and easy to maintain. Going forward, we will continue to develop both products. We plan to offer Microsoft customers a choice with regard to which architecture to use. The cloud offers users a unique and highly efficient way to implement remote access utilizing the rich functionality and robust security mechanisms of Azure Active Directory, without the need to change their perimeter network. The same service that takes care of 18 billion authentication requests per week handles your on-premises applications. Meir Mendelovich, Senior Program Manager Publishing Exchange Server 2013 As noted earlier, the retirement of Forefront Threat Management Gateway left a number of Exchange administrators in a quandary about how to publish their Exchange server to the Internet. Although large organizations can generally take advantage of an existing hardware load balancer infrastructure to accomplish this task, small- and medium-sized businesses might not have the funds or expertise to manage a load balancer. This is where the Web Application Server role can be very useful. The basic principles for publishing Exchange 2013 Outlook Web App and the Exchange Admin Center through Web Application Proxy are outlined in detail at dn635116(v=exchg.150).aspx. However, to get a better understanding of some of the capabilities of Web Application Proxy on Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview, consider the very simple scenario illustrated in Figure 4-11.
