MSPs are scrambling for Server 2008 and Windows 7 end of support in January, 2020.  Your customers may have mentioned moving the server to the cloud as an option but as an MSP you’re aware of the cost of expensive data-center hardware and licensing. Your also aware of the infrastructure costs required to connect their on-prem computers to the cloud Windows domain controller.  Why not move your customers servers to a full Windows 2016 or 2019 server in AWS and eliminate the infrastructure and licensing expenses? Since AWS uses Windows dat-acenter servers you can eliminate the cost of Microsoft CALS.

If your customers still have on-prem Windows Active Directory servers then you are aware of the potential failures that could cause catastrophic down-time.  You may have thought about moving the server to a datacenter or cloud solution with a site-to-site VPN, but this means you still have no AD control over your offsite computers.
