Microsoft rename of services


I came across this thread http://www.neowin.net/news/microsoft-renames-azure-services from my MVP emails and saw that there seems to be some rebranding by the marketing teams.

The most important table is :

Prior Service Name

New Service Name

Windows Azure Compute

Cloud Services

Windows Azure Platform - All Services

All Services

Windows Azure CDN


Windows Azure Storage


Windows Azure Traffic Manager

Traffic Manager

Windows Azure Virtual Network

Virtual Network

AppFabric Cache


AppFabric Service Bus

Service Bus

AppFabric Access Control

Access Control

SQL Azure

SQL Database

SQL Azure Reporting Service

SQL Reporting


While we can see these are only billing name changes, I do hope that some of these propagate  to the actual marketing materials that we use and consume.

I for one am kind of sick of trying to explain the difference between Azure Appfabric and Windows Server Appfabric!
