Unleashing the Full Potential of Custom Search in Hava.io

By Team Hava on Dec 6, 2023 1:31:00 PM


Navigating through complex cloud infrastructures can be challenging. However, Hava.io, a cloud diagramming automation tool, simplifies this process. This post will guide you on how to fully utilize the custom search feature in Hava.io.

Hava.io's custom search is a powerful feature that enables you to create custom diagrams based on specific criteria. This is particularly useful when you need to locate a specific resource, resource type, IP address, or VPC among numerous environments. The search box in Hava's main top menu allows you to input criteria, constructing a diagram from any resources that match the search term.

For example, if you need to isolate a single app's resources in a large VPC running multiple applications, this can be achieved if your resources contain a tag pair identifying the application. By inputting this tag pair into the custom search box, Hava.io will generate a diagram of all resources with that tag pair. You can also combine all search criteria to further refine the resources diagrammed.

Once a diagram is created, it can be saved for future reference. These custom diagrams are self-updating as part of Hava's regular sync process. You can also establish alerts for a custom saved diagram, ensuring you're notified via email when any changes occur on the diagram.

In conclusion, Hava.io's custom search feature offers a powerful and efficient method for managing your cloud resources. Whether you're overseeing resources across multiple cloud vendors or pinpointing specific resources within a large environment, Hava.io can help streamline your cloud management tasks.

How to Isolate App Resources in a Large VPC Using Hava

By Team Hava on Nov 14, 2023 1:23:00 PM


In the world of large and complex cloud infrastructures, isolating specific resources or segments can be a daunting task. However, with Hava.io, a tool that automates cloud diagramming, you can easily zero in on the resources you need. This blog post will guide you on how to use Hava.io to isolate app resources in a large Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) or Virtual Network.

Hava.io's custom search feature is a powerful tool that allows you to build custom diagrams on-the-fly based on specific criteria. This feature is especially useful when you need to find an individual resource, resource type, IP address, or VPC among the many environments you're managing. The search box in the main Hava top menu lets you specify criteria to construct a diagram out of any resources that match the entered search term.

For instance, if you want to isolate a single app's resources in a large VPC running multiple applications, you can do so if your resources contain a tag pair identifying the application. By typing the tag pair into the custom search box, Hava.io will build a diagram of all the resources with that tag pair. You can also combine all of the search criteria to narrow down diagrammed resources further.

Once a diagram is generated, you can save it for future reference. These custom diagrams self-update as part of the normal Hava sync process. You can also set up alerts for a custom saved diagram, so when anything changes on the diagram, you'll receive an email alert.

In summary, Hava.io's custom search feature provides a powerful and efficient way to isolate app resources in a large VPC. Whether you're managing resources across multiple cloud vendors or trying to zero in on specific resources in a large environment, Hava.io can help streamline your cloud management tasks.

The Future of Cloud Security: Exploring Hava’s Cutting Edge Traffic Flow Visualization and Security Group Control

By Team Hava on Nov 7, 2023 4:07:00 PM


As cloud environments continue to evolve, so do the challenges in securing them. The future of cloud security demands tools that can keep pace with the complexities and provide clarity and control. Hava, with its cutting-edge features for traffic flow visualization and security group control, is at the forefront of this future.

Hava is a cloud infrastructure diagramming tool, but its capabilities extend far beyond just creating diagrams. It specializes in providing visualizations that are not only informative but also actionable. One of Hava’s most impressive features is its Security View, which offers a comprehensive visualization of security groups within AWS or Azure Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs).

What sets Hava apart is its ability to map out traffic flow within the VPC. It uses arrows to indicate how traffic can enter and exit security groups, showing what ports are open and where the traffic is routed. This visualization is crucial for understanding potential vulnerabilities and ensuring that only necessary ports are open.

In addition to traffic flow visualization, Hava provides detailed control over security groups. By clicking on a security group in the Security View, you can see detailed information, including ingress and egress rules. This allows for a quick assessment of whether a security group is configured correctly or if it’s accepting traffic that it shouldn’t be.

But Hava doesn’t stop there. Its diagrams are interactive, allowing you not only to view information but also to take action. For instance, if you identify a misconfigured security group, you can quickly navigate to the relevant configuration in the AWS or Azure console and make necessary adjustments.

Another forward-looking feature of Hava is its ability to retain historical data. This is invaluable for tracking changes over time and understanding how your cloud environment has evolved. It can also be critical for compliance and auditing purposes.

Hava is paving the way for the future of cloud security with its cutting-edge features for traffic flow visualization and security group control visualization. Its interactive diagrams provide the clarity and control needed to secure complex cloud environments effectively. As cloud security continues to be a moving target, tools like Hava will be indispensable in staying ahead of the curve.
