I currently have a co-location production environment which I want to migrate to AWS. Our infrastructure relies heavily on Active Directory for access to several platforms hosted within the environment - think Sharepoint, Tableau, etc.
I've had conflicting advice so far in terms of setup - I've been advised to go down both EC2 and VPC routes and I can't seem to make either way stick. Essentially I want to be able to setup a domain controller, staging and production SQL/Web servers, CI server and SAN.
Has anybody has success in setting up an AD/DNS/DHCP domain controller in either EC2 or VPC? Do you even need DHCP when setting up in EC2?
