Automated Google Cloud Diagrams

Staying on top of an ever-changing GCP architecture can be a daunting and tedious task: manual monitoring of your cloud assets is time-consuming and error-prone, which makes it virtually impossible to rely 100% on the data you have on hand.

Instead of creating your GCP diagrams from scratch, by using Cloudockit, you can quickly get a full and accurate overview of your Google cloud architecture. Your diagrams will display not only your workloads and the association between them but also the metadata for each shape and warning icons related to the compliance rules you selected.
