Azure Cloud: Subscription Vs Account

Updated: Jan 18, 2022

Once you start using the cloud, you will most likely encounter two core terms, "Account" and "Subscription," so let's understand what those are exactly.

Subscription: A subscription contains the carious resources you provision in the cloud (VM's, Storage, DBs, etc.). It groups user accounts and the resources that those users have created. In fact, for every resource you create in the cloud, you will be asked to pick the subscription they will be previsioned (you can have one subscription or more). A subscription can be attached to multiple accounts in the organization.
