Out of the MANY different announcements made today is included the fact that Microsoft has created a new logo for the Microsoft Azure cloud. The old logo could be described as a cloud with a module connected to it. It wasn’t exceptional, but it was unique to Microsoft Azure. Today, Microsoft released a brand new logo for Microsoft Azure. Not only that! But, Microsoft has released a new “Azure Manifesto” video as well to inspire all of us “change agents” to unlock the power of the cloud!
New Azure Logo
The new Microsoft Azure logo is a bit more abstract, and it doesn’t include a cloud in it anymore. If you’re familiar with the Microsoft Office icons / logos, then you may recognize a similar style theme. It also forms a letter “A” that obviously represents the name “Azure”.
Along with the new logo comes a new tagline as well:
Azure. Cloud for all.
This isn’t perhaps the biggest news in Microsoft Azure to be released today, but it’s still interesting. Any re-branding is interesting, even when it’s just a logo / icon.
The Azure Manifesto is sort of a mission statement for us to follow. Microsoft says that we are all “Change Agents” that need to work to unlock the cloud. To get the full Azure Manifesto message, you can view Microsoft’s short video below:
