Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Creates Amazon Web Services Diagrams that Specify and Document AWS Virtual Infrastructure

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is one of the market leaders of services to define IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) and PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) in Cloud environments. The services can be used in isolation, but more typically are used in combination to create scalable Cloud applications and services, reducing any of the delays and issues associated with infrastructure provisioning and device management such as Compute, Storage and Network devices. Enterprise Architect provides modeling constructs that allow you to create expressive AWS diagrams that specify new Cloud infrastructure and platforms or document existing ones. You can also model other Cloud Infrastructure and platform providers such as Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft's Azure.

While AWS has tools for doing this, the power of Enterprise Architect is that you can create visualizations that show the relationship to on-premise platforms, and the elements and services can be related to other system life-cycle artifacts such as Strategy, Business Rules, Requirements, Constraints, XML and Database Schemas, just to mention a few.
