Moving Workloads to AWS or Azure? These Terminologies are Essential to know
Many organizations turn to the public cloud for its massive, on-demand compute and storage capabilities. These capabilities matter a little if there is no proper networking to ensure applications run smoothly. AWS and Azure are the two most popular cloud service providers offering a range of services to private data centers and end users to ensure workloads with proper networking.
The first thing to understand when configuring cloud networks is the terminology used by the service providers. AWS and Azure are technically cloud service providers, but these are distinctive in terms of their functionalities.
What is AWS?

AWS uses Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) to describe the isolated cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) which can able to manage each customer. To access VPC, there should be a required connection or routing from the Virtual Private Network (VPN) gateway.
