Container Diagram Generator

By Team Hava on June 8, 2022

With the wide adoption of containers as a method of rapidly deploying software applications to the cloud, the need to visualise workloads has been gaining momentum. The need to see the status of pods and tasks in container clusters is a major benefit when you visualise containerised workloads on an interactive diagram.

Hava has always generated diagrams for traditional compute VPCs and virtual networks and for a long time has also automatically generated AWS ECS Cluster diagrams when clusters are detected in a connected AWS account.

The ability to diagram other containerised workloads, particularly the market leading Kubernetes  has now been added to the core functionality of Hava so you can now view AWS EKS Kubernetes clusters, Azure Kubernetes Clusters (AKS), Google Kubernetes Clusters (GKE) and also stand alone Kubernetes Clusters 

One of the diagrams that is automatically generated when you connect your AWS account to Hava is the AWS ECS Container View.

Draw Azure Architecture Diagrams

By Team Hava on June 2, 2022

If you are building solutions on Microsoft Azure, at some point you'll want to draw some Azure architecture diagrams 

When you have accurate and up to date architecture diagrams on hand it enables you to visually explain your network infrastructure to both your engineering and operations team and also provide management with an easy to understand representation of what you are building and managing.

Accurate up to date diagrams also let you know that your network has been built in line with your design.

If you are onboarding new engineers, or engaging external consultants, you can bring them up to speed very quickly with a well laid out Azure network topology diagram.

The problem with traditional diagrams has always been the time it takes to draw them, which is why it's better to consider generating them instead. If you use manual drag and drop diagram software or drawing packages like Microsoft Visio the process can take forever which is why up to date Azure network topology diagrams are rarely on hand. Cloud engineers almost always don't have the time or motivation to sit down and draw Azure architecture diagrams. Who doesn't have far more important or pressing issues to work on.

This is where you can leverage Hava to help you create Azure diagrams.

If you are taking on a new client or development project, having access to infrastructure documentation is a massive advantage when trying to understand exactly what is running on your network. Come to think of it, with the complex nature of cloud consoles and network configurations you may be surprised at what you have running in your existing Azure infrastructure.

Back in the day our team provided expert cloud consulting services. When we took on a new client, diagramming the new client's infrastructure was always the first job in the process. It was always, without exception, time consuming, laborious but necessary in establishing exactly what was going on in the client's cloud accounts prior to starting work on improving or redesigning the network infrastructure.

Identifying the resources and VPCs in your AWS account and which AWS regions they are deployed in can be a time consuming process that is often put off when there are more important jobs to be done. 

If you have been working with AWS infrastructure for any length of time, you understand the importance of documenting your AWS VPCs using network topology diagrams. They visually represent the construction of your AWS network, and can also speed up the on-boarding of new team members and external consultants. 

Knowing what regions your infrastructure is deployed in is essential when trying to establish what would happen if there is an outage in one particular AWS region. If us-east-1 drops out, can your application continue to function.

So having a diagram that clearly shows what regions host your VPCs and AWS resources is not a bad idea.

Engineers rarely have the time or motivation to sit down and create Azure diagrams. They generally have far more important or pressing issues to work on.

This is where you can leverage Hava to help you create Azure diagrams.

If you are taking on a new client or development project, having access to infrastructure documentation is a massive advantage when trying to understand exactly what is running on your network. Come to think of it, with the complex nature of cloud consoles and network configurations you may be surprised at what you have running in your existing infrastructure.

Back in the day our team provided expert cloud consulting services. When we took on a new client, diagramming the new client's infrastructure was always the first job in the process. It was always, without exception, time consuming, laborious but necessary in establishing exactly what was going on in the client's cloud accounts prior to starting work on improving or redesigning the network infrastructure.

AWS VPC Peering Diagram

By Team Hava on January 27, 2022

A VPC peering connection is a networking connection between two VPCs that enables you to route traffic between the two VPCs using private IPv4 or IPv6 addresses. Instances in either VPC can communicate with each other as if they are within the same network. You can create a VPC peering connection between your own VPCs, or with a VPC in another AWS account. The VPCs can be in different AWS regions which is also known as an inter-region VPC peering connection.

Azure Diagrams Online

By Team Hava on September 15, 2021

When you are working with Microsoft Azure, there are many advantages when you create and maintain accurate Microsoft azure diagrams online.

With accurate up to date diagrams on hand, you can effectively communicate your Azure network design to both technical engineering staff and also management where necessary.  If you are onboarding new engineers, or engaging external consultants, you can bring them up to speed very quickly with a well laid out Azure network topology diagram.

The problem with diagrams is the time it takes to create them. If you are using manual drag and drop diagram software or drawing packages like visio the process can take forever which is why up to date Azure diagrams are rarely on hand. Nobody has the time or motivation to sit down and create diagrams. You usually have far more important or pressing issues to sort out.

This is where creating Azure Diagrams Online using Hava comes into play.

If you are taking on a new client or development project, having access to infrastructure documentation is a massive advantage when trying to understand exactly what is running on your network.

Back in the dim dark past of our cloud consulting days, diagramming a new client's infrastructure was always the first job in the process.
