The Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog started a series of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 Feature of the day posts the other day. As they did with the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Feature of the Day posts they are doing them as short posts containing a PowerPoint slide show. I am translating these from the PowerPoints into posts; you can find my series index here.
The ninth Feature of the Day covered is Identity Management - Scalability Groups. The Identity Management Scale Groups provides flexible deployment options and improved efficiency for multitenant web client deployments. Using scale groups, you can logically group the web client session host servers that have a common configuration and host the same tenants. The web servers shared by all tenants will then be able to efficiently distribute tenant load across the session host servers configured for that tenant.
This should make it a lot easier to work in a cloud deployment of Dynamics GP.

This feature is targeted at the following roles:
