All about Azure icons
A comprehensive guide for Azure Icons
Start diagramming using Azure icons
Azure icons are used to symbolize Azure products. These can help you create custom Azure architectural diagrams, training material, or documentation for your future solution/software/app, etc. There are many Azure icons for the Azure services, so it is useful to understand the most important ones before downloading and using them. We have compiled a list of important Azure icons which can also be downloaded. All of these icons are already included in the Holori Azure architecture diagram software, however, it may be useful for you to understand their purposes.

Azure load balancer
The process of equally spreading incoming network traffic (load) across a group of backend resources or servers is referred to as load balancing. The load balancer distributes inbound flows to backend pool instances that arrive at the load balancer’s front end. Load balancers are used to balance internet traffic to your virtual machines or within a virtual network. Your applications can be scaled and highly available services created. Azure load balancer icons are an important element of your architecture diagram as they help you and your teammates specify your load balancing requirements.
Azure’s virtual machines are scalable compute resources that are available on demand. These are suitable for hosting applications. Azure Virtual Machines are also useful for testing, deploying, and developing environments. Azure provides a pay-as-you-go option to its customers. SQL Server, SAP, Oracle software, and high-performance computing applications can be operated on Azure Virtual Machines. Users can also select between Windows and Linux servers.
Security Center (Microsoft Defender for Cloud)
It is a cloud security solution that scans your cloud configuration for weaknesses and vulnerabilities. It defends against malicious attacks on hybrid workloads running in Azure, AWS, Google Cloud Platform, and on-premises. The Azure product represented by this icon improves the overall security posture of your environment and helps protect workloads from emerging attacks. It improves the overall security setup of your cloud resources.
This is an Azure service that allows apps to be dynamically scaled by any measure to suit changing demand. It is a feature that you just pay for what you use. For example, if your traffic spikes from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or Monday through Friday, you can scale back at night and on weekends to save money.
VHD Data Disk – VHD
These are Azure-managed disks which provide Block-level storage volumes to store any type of data or application. These are used in combination with Azure Virtual Machines. On-premises, these are physical disks that provide virtual services to customers. Using managed disks, a user can create up to 50,000 VM disks per region. It enables you to create thousands of virtual machines with a single subscription.
Also called as VNet, it enables Azure resources to communicate securely with one another. VNets are similar to traditional networks, but they also have the extra benefits of Azure’s infrastructure, such as scalability and availability. They are very important in a cloud diagramming tool as users can drag and drop other icons on top of Virtual Network areas to virtually add them to this network, thus simplifying the centralized management of the infra.
An Azure storage account holds all of your Azure Storage data objects, such as blobs, file shares, queues, tables, and disks. For your Azure Storage data, the storage account generates a unique namespace. This information is available over HTTP or HTTPS from anywhere in the world. Data in your storage account is both long-lasting and highly accessible, as well as safe and scalable.
Azure Blob storage is a cloud object storage service designed for storing large amounts of unstructured data. This Azure icon provides a low-cost, high-availability storage solution that serves images or documents straight to a browser. It can also store files for dispersed access and stream video and audio.
It is an Azure-managed device that extends Azure’s computation, storage, and intelligence to the edge. A user can execute applications near to the data at the edge, analyze the data for immediately actionable insights using hardware accelerated AI/ML, and transmit data efficiently and easily between the cloud and the edge.
It’s a traffic load balancing service that lets you distribute traffic to your public-facing apps across all Azure regions worldwide. Additionally, Traffic Manager ensures that your public endpoints are constantly accessible and respond rapidly. It improves application availability and efficiency.
It is a method of managing access, policy, and compliance for such subscriptions in an efficient manner. This Azure icon provides enterprise-grade management at scale regardless of the sort of subscriptions you have. In a cloud diagram it helps you apply common rules to a set of elements instead of doing it for each element individually.
Azure Service Bus
Azure Service Bus is an enterprise message broker with message queues and publish-subscribe topics that is fully managed. It is used to safely route and transfer data and control across service and application boundaries, as well as to coordinate transactional activities that require high reliability.
It is an API management platform for hybrid and multi-cloud settings. This Azure icon in your Azure architecture diagram allows you to deploy API gateways alongside APIs hosted in Azure and other clouds. It also aids in the protection of your resources, creating apps more quickly and enhancing API discoverability
Let the icons work for you by using Holori diagramming software.
Holori’s Azure architecture diagram tool is an innovative tool that allows you to create a new Azure architecture diagram very quickly. Azure diagrams made using Holori cloud diagramming software are more than simple drawings or diagrams. They give you a complete overview of your Azure cloud infrastructure and allow you to actively interact with your cloud infra. Any modification made to your cloud infra diagram can then be pushed online to scale your Azure infrastructure up or down
Holori cloud diagramming software also evaluates the cost of your Azure architecture diagram, by selecting the icons of the products you require, Holori suggests the cheapest availability zone for your infra. Holori diagramming software is capable of benchmarking your current infra with multiple cloud providers as well. If you want to save time and costs, look no further and start using Holori architecture diagram tool today.
