Support for Cross-forest deployments

Wonderful news from the Sharepoint Team Blog, in the new version of Sharepoint we will get support for Cross-forest deployments.

Picture this, we can use Sharepoint in multy-forests environment, with the support needed, there are two main scenarios: Resource forest and Multi-login forest.

Resource forest:

When we have a one way trust relation between the forests, and we can transport the users from one forest (resource) to be used in another (corp.).

Multi-login forest:

We have two way trust between forests, this means that we can , from a Sharepoint point of view, use the users from both forests without concern on their location.

 There are a lot more information on the article that is relevant for understanding the concept.
