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:

Translations between Microsoft Azure and AWS terminology:
