New VMware Icons Visio Stencil Download

Update – 5/20/2013: Head to my VMware Visio Stencils and Shapes permalink page for the latest versions of this stencil, and my VMware Horizon View specific shapes.

I’ve been working on some Visio diagrams for some VMware projects I am architecting.  I wanted to use some icons to identify VM’s and vCenter actions in my diagrams and found there were no good Visio stencils, shapes or templates for it so I made my own.  They’re not the greatest quality, but will do for now.  Here’s what the new pack looks like:

VMware Visio Icons Stencil

And here’s where you can download them: VMtoday-VMware-Icons.

Update: 11/11/2012 – I had a request to provide these in VSX format (XML Stencil) – you can get them here: VMware-View-Visio-Stencil-XML-Stencil

If you have ideas for more icons or shapes leave a comment – I’ll post an updated download if/when i get new shapes.

My stencil is by no means complete.  If you are looking for other VMware Visio stencils  shapes or templates to download o help you document and diagram your virtual datacenter, check out these resources:

    do you know a way to get the image from the vss ?


  2. thx i will have a try

  3. Hi,

    Many thanks for the stencils.. they look really good. However I am struggling to edit the “text” portion of the Esxi Layer… Is there a way to change the text in white in there? Same applies to all other “layers”


  4. Hi,
    Do you happen to have ever come across the Visio stencils for the EMC VNXe 3100, 3150 and 3300 models ?

    Hi Josh,
    Excellent Visio Icons but I wonder did you manage to work out how to edit the text in the Build Your Own shapes?
