Hi,

 

Azure is so broad that it is sometimes difficult to find your way. Although a list of services already exists, I tried to include extra decision factors helping to choose for a solution or another. For instance, if you were to design a Microservices architecture over containers and hesitate between AKS & Service Fabric Mesh, one differentiating factor is how these platforms handle service state. These factors are by no means comprehensive and are even subject to discussion but of course, since it is represented as a mental map, I have to remain high-level and there is no room for arguing.  I have articulated the map around 8 typical concerns when deploying workloads to the Cloud:

 

  • Monitoring
  • Security
  • Workload types (SoE, SoI, SoX, SoR)
  • Connectivity
  • Identity
  • CI/CD
  • Governance and Compliance
  • Containerization. 

I haven't segregated FaaS, PaaS and IaaS and some services belong to multiple high-level nodes but this should help you identifying some key areas and key services.

 

Here is a screenshot of the map:

 

map.png

 

and you can access it in the map format through the following URLs (including versions):

 

v1 https://app.mindmapmaker.org/#m:mmf52b63e73aed4b36ba5e26a179aecd18
v1.1 https://app.mindmapmaker.org/#m:mm116de05b945043de8bed184fce863cdb

 

Feel free to collapse/expand nodes as grasping it right with the image only is a bit challenging. Other maps will follow with a deeper look at specific areas, I plan to come up with the following maps:

 

These maps are more technical since representing all of this into a single map would result in a very indigestible map.

@stephaneey , this is a wonderful map. I would like to dive in look at the map.  the URL above is coming up blank in browsers. Any ideas?

Thanks

bhaskar

Hello Bhaskar,

 

Sorry it doesn't work for you, I guess it's a browser issue. The pointer I put in the post is still working fine on my side...

Hello @stephaneey,

 

It should be working fine. Thanks for your great work!

 

Best Regards,

Very nice @stephaneey

 

Good overview for us visual thinkers. 

 

If populated with URLs for the specific features, it could be even more powerful. 

 

Do you expect to keep developing/updating this ?

 

Best Kenneth 

Hi Kenneth,

 

Thanks! Yes I plan to elaborate further and come with the following maps: Azure Security Architect Map, Azure Infrastructure Architect Map and Azure Application Architect. These will dive much deeper in the specific areas. Regarding the URLs, you're right, I first thought adding them but faced some limitations with the tool since the nodes aren't clickable but might still be worth adding them. I'll update the map :)

 

Best Regards

@KennethLindgren I've added the URLs (quite tedious work) :). 

Microsoft

Hi again @stephaneey That sounds great, but i can't see them in the link.

 

https://app.mindmapmaker.org/#m:mmd8ae11267696453db060a039d2c506b0

 

Also do you know if mindmap supports saving to PDF or sharing a view-mode where the links would be easily clickable ?

 

Best Kenneth 

@KennethLindgren sorry it seems it was a wrong link. That should be ok now. This mind map software doesn't allow exports to PDF...The only possibilities are PNG & JSON. Also, just make sure to use the new link I posted. Whenever I change the map, the link gets a new GUID...so if you use bookmarks, you won't see the latest changes...sorry :)

I would suggest to look at this one too https://nnmer.github.io/azure-services-map/

A handful map. Keep it coming more.

@stephaneey , this is great! Creating the architect map as a mind map is brilliant! Thank you and keep up the great work!!!

Great map @stephaneey . This is a great reference map.

Ave,

 

How fab. I'm relatively new to working with Azure, this made for an interesting perusal this morning as I work on a platform project.

 

Many thanks.

Microsoft

@stephaneey would love to see Azure Resource Graph and Azure Blueprints show up under Governance.

@Satya Vel Indeed, they should be added too. I'll update the map accordingly
