AWS Architecture

Written by Ten Touch. Posted in

Architecture diagrams are a great way to communicate about a specific design, deployment and topology. The Amazon notation suggests a set of icons to be used when creating architecture diagrams that handle the Amazon Web Services or Amazon Cloud Services. These icons are designed to be simple so that they can be easily integrated in whitepapers, presentations, datasheets, posters or any other technical material.

Advantages Of AWS Architecture Diagrams

  • Easier to present a specific design describing the use of AWS or ACS
  • Universally recognized set of objects
  • Efficient and easy to digest
  • Professional looking
  • Time saver for complex presentations

AWS Architecture Stencils in Grafio

The vector stencils library “AWS Architecture” contains symbol icons of Amazon Web Services (AWS) elements for drawing AWS cloud architecture diagrams. “Amazon Web Services (abbreviated AWS) is a collection of remote computing services (also called web services) that together make up a cloud computing platform, offered over the Internet by Amazon.com. The most central and well-known of these services are Amazon EC2 and Amazon S3. The service is advertised as providing a large computing capacity (potentially many servers) much faster and cheaper than building a physical server farm.” Source:Wikipedia
