Naming convention for Servers, Devices, Applications etc.

The below is an example of how you would name your Servers, Devices, Applications etc. in an enterprise world:

 

Location \ Role, Service \ Environment \ Instance

 

So for a third AWS Web Production Server, we would name it the following:

 

AWSWEBPROD03

 

We think the above is simple to remember and gives a clear description of what the asset is but let us know what naming conventions you use for your organisation / business.
