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 (Amazon Web Services) is a secure cloud services platform, offering compute power, database storage, content delivery, and other functionalities to help businesses scale and growth. 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.

Azure helps an organization to meet the business challenges by deploying applications on a massive, global network using required tools and frameworks.
Knowing the service names and their functionalities can help in refining the cloud networking basics for server administrators to build cloud instance. Consider the following terms which exclusively determines the AWS and Azure services.
• AWS Route 53 and Azure DNS are domain name system services.
• AWS Cloud Watch and Azure Application Insights are built-in performance analytic tools
• AWS labels its dedicated service as Direct Connect, While Azure's similar service is known as Express Route.
Moving to the AWS and Azure cloud services can help companies rethink business processes and accelerate business change with more enthusiasm. These cloud computing vendors are increasingly pushing cloud computing as an agent of digital transformation instead of focusing solely on cost.
