Cloud Architecture involves the relationship between various components of the IT project like front end platform, back end platform, databases, software capabilities, applications etc. Cloud computing makes storage and access of documents easier and efficient.
There are several things one needs to consider while creating a Cloud Architecture diagram, like- costs involved, Complexity of the solution proposed, and the speed which the cloud would offer. Baseline cloud computing architectures are foundational blocks to cornerstone ideas, and it is imperative that they would require a good deal of iterations based on optimum design requirements. Here are a few tools that allows you to create Cloud Architecture diagrams, easily.
With an intuitive diagram editor, and powerful formatting tools, VPO creates a professional-looking diagram that brings out your idea beautifully. You just need to drag and create a shape, and later align it with an appropriate command. VPO supports a wide range of visualisation needs like software design, data modelling, business process mapping, strategic analysis etc., and has been adopted by a wide range of industries including education and social units.Image Courtesy: online.visual-paradigm.com
Cloudcraft is an AWS optimized tool to capture key services with smart components for EC2, ELB, Redshift etc. It allows you information at your fingertips, all you need to do is to click any component to see its current configuration and cost. You can share your diagrams and collaborate directly with your team, export files into documents and presentations.Image Courtesy: cloudcraft.co
Arcentry makes it easy for backend and cloud specialists to plan, monitor, and maintain complex server architectures. It combines feature-rich interface with a host of open-source like AWS, Azure and Google cloud components to create interactive 3D diagrams that can be exported as high-res images for presentations, blog posts, and developer platforms.Image Courtesy: arcentry.com
Having leveraged its constantly-expanding worldwide network of data centers, Microsoft created Azure - a cloud computing platform that provides a range of services like computation, analytics, storage and networking.Image Courtesy: azure.microsoft.com
Draw AWS Architecture software facilitates precise drawing with advanced features like snap and glue, auto spacing and alignment, and grids and dynamic guides. Once finished, you can export the drawing into a format of suitable choice- pdf, ppt, Word, PNG and so on. Edraw also supports big-size, complicated, and multi page drawings.Image Courtesy: edrawsoft.com
The main purpose of architectural diagrams is not only limited to facilitating collaboration or reducing time for iterations, but also analyse an optimum way out for a problem statement. The less complicated an architecture, the better it is to implement.
