Creating a Naming Convention for Azure
Organisations use naming conventions to make it easier and more efficient to work with governance and security. As organisations started to adopt cloud many kept on using the same naming convention without adapting it. This created issues since the naming conventions, which were designed to be used for on-premise systems, didn’t support new resource types that are created in cloud environments such as Azure. This article goes through the basic concepts and recommendations related to creating a naming convention for Azure. A detailed example of a “Naming Convention Guideline” for Azure is also provided to newsletter subscribers.
