The first thing I do when starting an Azure architectural or concept drawing is to gather the most current Azure icons I’ll need for the project. This is a list of resources of Azure Icon Sets and Visio stencils to download. If you’re using an online draw program, you can search within these resources for any missing icons/symbols you need.
- This is a free download from Microsoft which includes icons (SVG format only) icons for almost all Azure services and Microsoft cloud related technologies
- Microsoft no longer includes Visio stencils (since these are only in the subscription versions of Visio now) in the Azure Icon Set, so the Visio Stencils provided in resources #3-6 below are invaluable now!
- Ben Coleman provides a preview thumbnail gallery for all of these icon sets, with options to search, view on various light & dark backgrounds, download as SVG or PNG formats!
- All options can all be downloaded in bulk – or selectively download sets of files
- Azure Docs
- Official Azure Icon Set (same #1 above , but here you can see a thumbnail of each icon – and download as PNG if desired)
- Azure Patterns Collection
- Old MS Cloud Icon Set
- Other Sets and Collections
