What is Azure Active Directory, how is this different from on-premises domain controller?

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is an identity and access management solution in Azure Cloud. Like the on-premises Active Directory Domain Controller, you cannot run an LDAP and Kerberos query against Azure AD. However, you can run the Graph API query against the Azure AD and securely manage identity in Cloud.
