Back to School: Cloud Terminology

Before there was the Internet, before there were memes, before, etc., we got our comedy from record albums. I used to listen to Steve Martin, in particular. On one of his records he told a story about how he went to France, and he lamented that “over there, oeuf means egg. Fromage means cheese. It’s like those French have a different word for EVERYTHING!”

Exactly, Steve. That’s what a language is. Hence the comedic irony.

But it’s not funny if your job is to understand cloud computing terminology for multiple cloud vendors. In this webinar, Product Specialist Todd Bernhard walks viewers through important cloud concepts, and then explains the terminology that Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure use for each concept. Think of this as a Rosetta Stone that covers cloud concepts… That could come in handy if you ever see Steve Martin dressed as King Tut and want to talk like an Egyptian!

Here are some examples:

There are some complexities to the Cloud Computing Terminology used by AWS and Azure, so it’s worth expanding your knowledge if you’re working to grow your cloud practice. Watch our webinar below for a full lesson in language!
