Automated AWS Diagram Generation: Simplify Your Cloud Diagrams

January 4, 2024

Automated AWS Diagram Generation

Are you tired of manually creating AWS architecture diagrams? Look no further than hava.io! Our platform generates interactive cloud diagrams in minutes from multiple cloud vendors, including AWS.

The Advantages of Using hava.io for Automated AWS Diagram Generation

With hava.io, you can explore, monitor, and track changes in your cloud infrastructure. Ditch your drawing tools and let hava.io do the heavy lifting for you.

Here are some of the advantages of using hava.io for automated AWS diagram generation:

Ease of Use

Simply create a read-only cross-account role and use those credentials to connect your AWS account to hava.io. It then pulls back the resources and relationships between them, building a complete visualization of your environment in several diagram views.

Infrastructure View - a fully interactive diagram showing you the running resources in a vpc, subnet and availability zone details, connections and all the known metadata related to a selected resource instance.

AWS Architecture Diagram

Security View: Shows you all the configured security groups and what those groups control. The overlaid arrows represent the open ports, ingress and egress points and what protocols are in play.

AWS_Security_Group_Diagram

List View: Shows you a detailed list of all the discovered resources and components found when Hava scanned your AWS account(s). This will include items that are not visualized on your infrastructure diagrams (like network interface cards or storage volumes) that would clutter up the diagram and make it unreadable.

Up-to-Date Diagrams

Hava continuously syncs all your diagrams, so an up-to-date diagram set is always at hand. You can also trigger an update by integrating Hava right into your CI/CD pipeline.

Versioning

Hava retains a version history of your changes detected in your environments. Older versions can be opened, inspected interactively and even exported for external archiving.

Diff View

Visualize what changed between two points in time, what was added and what was taken away. Invaluable if you are trying to track down the cause of an outage or unexpected application errors.

Additional Reporting

Hava includes an AWS compliance report based on the AWS trusted advisor methodology. Reports include an account summary as well as highlighting configuration issues and suggestions.

Architectural Monitoring

Hava can tell you when it detects an unexpected change. An alert is sent to everyone you nominate with a diff diagram showing you the changes that triggered the alert.

Never miss another change again (unintentional or otherwise)
