At the core of Hyperglance is a model that consists of Nodes, Links and Endpoints:

Nodes represent devices and other central concepts. They include things like Instances, Storage, Switches, Load balancers, Regions, etc.

Links represent connections and associations between nodes. Some links are purely logical and may not have much information of their own, but they serve to produce a meaningful 3D view. Other links correspond to an underlying concept, such as a flow, and they can have interesting attributes of their own.

Endpoints are the connection points between links and nodes. They can relate to concepts such as network-interfaces and LUNs. Many endpoints exist simply to allow a purely logical link to span between two nodes and will have no important information on them otherwise. Other endpoints correspond to real concepts, for example EC2 Instance nodes have network interfaces on them which are modelled as endpoints.

Left-clicking on any of the above entity types (nodes, links endpoints) will bring up the entity dashboard:
