The Microsoft Azure, Cloud and Enterprise Symbol / Icon Set is a Free download from Microsoft that includes the icons for all the different Microsoft Azure services and other products. These icons are extremely helpful in creating much nicer architectural diagrams for systems that use Microsoft Azure services. These icons can be used to help you have fun in creating internal project diagrams to impress your co-workers or boss. Or, you can use these icons to give your architecture diagrams and project documentation amore professional look before you deliver to your clients.



Microsoft Azure Cloud and AI Symbol / Icon Set – SVG

I use these icons in images for BuildAzure.com, in addition to my user group / conference talk slides, and any other training content I develop. They really help enhance the professional look and feel of the content that I build, and increase the brand cohesiveness between the products I’m writing about and the Microsoft branding for them.

DOWNLOAD AZURE ICONS

The download consists of a .zip file that contains a collection of .svg images for the various Microsoft Azure icons. You can import these images directly into Microsoft PowerPoint, or even open them in your browser and take screenshots of them from there. Microsoft has stated that they are planning to update the downloaded collection of icons over time.

What can I use these Azure icons for?

You can use this download collection of Azure icons for the following purposes:

  • Use the icons to illustrate how products can work together
  • In diagrams, to represent the specific Azure service. It’s recommended to use the Azure service name in your diagrams as well to alleviate potential confusion.
  • Use the icons as they would within Azure
  • Include Azure icons in your architectural diagrams, training materials, or documentation to represent Microsoft Azure services.

FYI, these Azure icons are provided by Microsoft and the downloaded .zip collection contains Microsoft’s Terms of Use for using the icons. Please reference the Terms of Use included alongside the icons in the .zip download for a full list of terms you need to adhere to when using these icons.


What file format are the images?

The icons in this collection are in SVG (Scalable Vector Graphic) format. You can easily resize these images to fit your needs without compromising on the quality of the icons in your diagrams, PowerPoints, etc.


Do the Azure Icons work in PowerPoint?

Absolutely! Office 365 versions of PowerPoint support importing .svg file based images. So including these in your PowerPoints are extremely simple.


Can I use these Azure Icons to represent my own product or service?

No, the Azure icons are provided for download by Microsoft for you to use in architectural diagrams, training materials, or documentation. You may not use them to represent your own products or services.


Can I modify the Azure icons?

No, modifying the Azure icons when using them is not included in the Terms of Use that Microsoft licenses these icons with. Please refer to the Terms of Use included in the Azure icon download .zip file for full Terms of Use details to adhere to.

The Azure icon download is not provided by Build5Nines. It is provided by Microsoft and the Azure icons are copyrighted Microsoft property, so you’ll need to adhere to Microsoft Terms of Use when including them and using them. This page is to help you locate where to download the Azure icons, and to help raise awareness to the availability of the full Azure icon collection .zip file archive offered directly by Microsoft.

    Hi Chris, from what I’ve read online it seems that Microsoft is wanting us to start using the new style of icons that we can find from: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/solutions/architecture/. Are there any available Visio stencils for those new icons? Or are they not available yet?

    I’m still amazed that they stopped developing the 3D templates! They were amazing.

    If one needs to document existing azure solutions, in build, to try and reverse engineer what has been built for Enterprise, for example Rest APIs in addition to Vms etc, is there anything out there which can rebuild some realtime diagrams other than azuredocit.

      The link is still valid and working. Although I have noticed that for some reason it gives an error message in Safari on macOS. If you get an error with the link, please use a different web browser; such as Chrome to open it instead. I would fix it, but the issue is with Microsoft.com. 🙂

    So it looks like Microsoft removed the PowerPoint and Visio version of the icon library. This really makes no sense to me as now it seems Amazon and Google are doing a better job supporting systems architects than MSFT. I really don’ want to go import every single icon into a PPT, lookup the label, and then make my own deck every time they update an icon.

    Looking for a true Visio Stencil that I can use creating drawing for our new Azure environment. The download is now all .SVG files which Visio does not recognize as a shape to put in a Diagram.
