Scaling Trusted Agent for Request Routing

Use Trusted Agent Groups to allow request routing to specific groups of Trusted Agent Services, whether in the same or different private networks.

If private resources reside in multiple private networks, Trusted Agent Services may be provisioned in each of those private networks to allow communication with those private resources. Trusted Agent Groups may be used to route requests to the appropriate Trusted Agent Services in each private network.

For example, consider a sample distributed network that contains more than one Active Directory (AD) domain, such as a "Denver" domain and a "Seattle" domain. While these domains may have an Active Directory trust between them, authentication requests may be more efficient if "Denver" domain requests are routed to Denver Active Directory domain controllers and "Seattle" authentication requests are routed to "Seattle" Active Directory domain controllers. Routing of requests in this way can be accomplished using Trusted Agent Service scale-out.
