Microsoft Azure

Create Microsoft Azure Diagrams that Specify and Document Azure Virtual Infrastructure

Microsoft Azure (or simply Azure) is one of the market leaders in public Cloud computing platforms and provides services to define IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service), PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) and SaaS (Software as a Service) Cloud environments. Azure entered the market in 2010 and has steadily grown in importance as a corporate Cloud solution. The platform is used for building, testing, deploying, and managing applications and services through Microsoft-managed data centers and supports many programming languages, tools, and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems.

Enterprise Architect provides modeling constructs that allow you to create expressive Azure diagrams that specify new Cloud infrastructure and platforms or document existing ones. You can also model other Cloud Infrastructure and platform providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform (GPC).

The Microsoft Azure UML profile provides a new image library of graphics (icons and images) required to model Microsoft Azure deployments. The icons and images are provided by a Model Wizard framework pattern, which must be imported into your model before you can start creating diagrams that describe Microsoft Azure deployments. The Azure pattern contains over 350 Image Assets that can be dragged-and-dropped onto diagrams.
