Azure, AWS & Google Cloud Visio stencils to build your diagrams

Cloudockit is delighted to make their Visio Stencils available as a FREE download. These stencils are used internally by Cloudockit to automatically build cloud and on-premise architecture diagrams for Azure, AWS and Google Cloud Platform. As an added bonus, you can also use these stencils for Hyper-V and VMware.

As you might know, there are already stencils available for download from your cloud providers and we have re-used a lot of these standard stencils. Although very useful, we found many drawbacks that come with using the standard stencils once you start diagraming. These drawbacks include:

  • There is no standardization between cloud providers (Azure, AWS and GCP). You will lose time resizing the shapes or change the PIN position of the masters
  • The look and feel across the existing stencils is not coherent
  • There are no 3D shapes available to draw 3D Isometric Visio Diagrams
  • Some of the shapes provided are clunky (sometimes grouped, sometimes not grouped…)
  • Text management bellow the shapes is difficult to manage.

Cloudockit was able to standardize the stencils to avoid all drawbacks mentioned above.

This is an example of an Azure diagram generated with Cloudockit stencils:

Navigating in a Stencil

To navigate in a stencil provided by Cloudockit:

    • In the toolbar, click on Stencil Explorer
    • Then, in the Drawing Explorer, click on Masters to view the list of all Masters

The 3D Shapes are at the beginning of the list and start with 3D followed by the name of the 2D shapes (ex, 3DAPP Service)

Naturally, all of the standard components are included in the stencils:

    • Azure: Virtual Machine, Storage, Scale Set, Virtual Network, App Services, CosmoDB…
    • AWS: EC2 Instances, Load Balancers, Auto Scaling, CloudFront, Elastic Beanstalk, S3 Buckets…
    • GCP: VPC, App Engine, VM Instance, Kubernetes…
    • On-premise: Hyper-V & VMWare Hosts, Virtual Machines, Hard Drives…

Cloudockit can automatically generate architecture diagrams!

Save your company time, money and avoid making catastrophic mistakes by letting Cloudockit make diagrams for you!

CloudocKit generates 2D and 3D fully editable Visio Diagram of your cloud and on-premises environments. The 3D Diagrams are also inserted in a Word, PDF or Excel document, giving it a professional look.
