AWS to GCP to Azure Services Mapping

Funnily enough, the hardest part working with multi-cloud providers has been remembering the names of the services and what is the equivalent across each of the cloud providers.

These mappings help me when jumping between the different cloud providers, and therefore are a great reference point.

I hope this helps you to be able to link your knowledge across the different cloud providers, making it easier in your conversations, study and work.

Before you start

About this post:

  • 5 – 15 min average reading time

What you will gain reading this post:

  • AWS to GCP to Azure Service Mappings.
  • High level grouping and description to quickly identify services.

Now, let’s get started.

Introduction

Some cloud providers will have more advanced features on their service offerings, while others are added to remain competitive while making the functionality available.

It is important to understand that while these mappings are here to help you identify the equivalent services across the different providers it does not mean they are in feature parody with each other. Therefore, I recommend you to research the services in the providers once you have identified them.

This list focuses on Generally Available Services, massive shout-out to Google for producing the original content which I have taken as the base, and tweaked to be more Cloud provider agnostic.

Any feedback is welcomed to ensure this list is up to date and accurate.
