The faster your company grows, the more data you have to manage. Companies developing their infrastructure platform need to understand how their services work together and how their AWS solutions are stored, hosted, and deployed. Use the template, created by Lucidchart, to diagram your AWS architecture so that you can develop a deployment strategy with clarity.
How to use the AWS architecture diagram template
Step 1. Identify your AWS architecture goals
Before diving into the details of your architecture, use the template to review the pillars of a well-architected AWS framework. The framework helps guide your thinking and decisions as you build your AWS infrastructure and develop goals. Once you decide how your AWS services should work together, list the changes you plan to make and explain how each change helps achieve your goals.
Step 2. Diagram your AWS architecture
Now that you know where you’re going, you’re ready to map out your AWS architecture. Whether you’re simply hosting websites or developing complex applications, a well-designed AWS architecture diagram helps your team understand how to launch and manage your company’s products. First, use the template to install a diagramming app. After you design your architecture, embed it into the template and share it with your team prior to deployment.
Step 3. Plan your deployment strategy
Once your AWS diagram is designed and reviewed by your team, use the template to prepare for deployment and follow up on next steps. Start by identifying your deployment region and insert REST API details into the template. Then list SLAs and add links to new Jira tickets. You can also use the template to assign project owners and due dates.
