this week I had the chance to exchange with colleagues about possible Azure architectures. My main focus was to develop a cost effective infrastructure to support legacy applications (applications that do not support modern authentication (WS-Fed, SAML, and OAuth)).

But I would like to discuss this topic in another blog post.

This post is dedicated to the tool I used to create it.

The tool is called CloudSkew

Free AWS, Azure, GCP, Kubernetes Architecture Diagram Tool | CloudSkew
Draw AWS, Azure, GCP, Kubernetes diagrams for free (icons included)

It is a web application that allows you to create professional charts in a short time.

Features and benefits:

  • No installation needed
  • All icons preloaded

Icons for AWS, Azure, GCP, Kubernetes, CNCF, Alibaba Cloud, Oracle Cloud and more are already available in the app. You don't have to search for & download icons separately.

  • It's free
  • Diagram repository

CloudSkew is also your cloud diagram repository. All diagrams are auto-saved to CloudSkew's secure backend.

  • Built-in document editor
  • Share, export, print

To use it you need a GitHub or LinkedIn account.


If you want to learn more about it, I would recommend you to visit the developer's website.
