Cloudockit’s last software update unabled you to to generate Visio diagrams directly embedded in Word documents. It is a very useful tool to give you an architectural view of each component that are deployed in your subscription.
For example, if you have two Virtual Machines with a Load Balancer, Cloudockit automatically generates this Visio Diagram:
As you can see above, you have multiple layers in the diagram that allows you to understand how the Load Balancer, the Network Cards, the Virtual Machines and the Storages are connected. Since this feature is so useful, Cloudockit decided to bring you the ability to generate this kind of diagram for your entire subscription.
To use this feature, simply turn it on from the Cloudockit settings prior to the generating your documents.
Then, once the document is generated, you will have the ability to download the word document as usual but also a .zip file that contains the global Visio Diagram:
If you open the Visio diagram, you will be able to see all the components of your subscriptions.
As displayed in the above diagram, a green light is shown on a Virtual Machine when it is up and running. It works by using Shape Data.
All the shapes that you can see in the Visio Diagram have data that are automatically generated by Cloudockit. The example below shows the Size of the Virtual Machine, the Operating System and even the cost.
Of course, this data depends on the type of component you select. If you pick a SQL Server, you get the following data:
We believe this feature is a must for Architects that want to have a high level overview of their Azure Subscription and make changes in the global architecture of their environments.
As always, if you have some feedbacks or any other feature that you think we should add, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
