Mastering Cloud Vocabulary

Vocabulary is a problem when you start working with Microsoft Azure, or any cloud service offering. There are so many new terms to wrestle with. I was considering blogging my own glossary but Microsoft now have several web pages giving very useful information. Here are the links:

About Microsoft Azure. Many definitions have links to more detail:
Microsoft Azure glossary: A dictionary of cloud terminology on the Azure platform NB: A definition for “Tenant” is missing from the above but you can find it here What is an Azure AD directory?

About cloud technology generally:
Cloud computing terms

Translations between Microsoft Azure and AWS terminology:
Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services

(Microsoft Azure documentation is here)
There’s an interesting article on Service Principals and Application Development here.

What’s New (Azure)

That’s all for now. Enjoy!
