Introducing AWS Simple Icons for your Architecture Diagrams

Cloud Computing has shifted the focus more than ever to architecture of an application. In order to get the maximum benefit of on-demand infrastructure, it is important to invest time in your architectures.

A diagram is worth a thousand words. An architecture diagram is probably worth a million to architects and developers. Its is one of easiest and simplest ways to communicate quickly about your application, its architectures and its topology. We want you to share your AWS-powered cloud architectures with us so we (and our partners) can give you feedback.  

Hence, we have created AWS Simple Icons for most of our services and features. They are now available in our Architecture Center for download. Customers and partners can use them to create consistent-looking diagrams and share with us and the rest of the world. We have also included several example architecture digrams and guidelines on how to use these icons in your diagrams. These icons are simple by design so that you can incorporate them in your whitepapers, presentations and other places that you see fit. We are releasing multiple formats (PPTX, VISIO Stencil, SVG, EPS, Online tools) so that you can use the tools that you love.  

AWS Simple Icons

This is our first release of the icon set. We plan to keep the icon set up-to-date with our latest and greatest services and features and enhance the tools and resources so that it even easier for you to communicate with us. Your feedback is extremely important to us and hence please use the comments section if you have any feedback.

Happy Diagramming!
