Active Directory is a centralized and standardized system that automates network management of user data, security, and distributed resources, and enables interoperation with other directories. Active Directory is designed especially for distributed networking environments. Active Directory has three partitions. These are also known as naming contexts: domain, schema, and configuration.
Active Directory is a special-purpose database - it is not a registry replacement. AD is designed to handle a large number of read and search operations and a significantly smaller number of changes and updates.
