After your Elastic Cloud Enterprise installation is up, some additional steps might be required:
Add your own load balancer. Load balancers are user supplied and we do not currently provide configuration steps for you.
- Configure ECE for deployment templates to indicate what kind of hardware you have available for Elastic Stack deployments.
- Install your security certificates to enable TLS/SSL authentication for secure connections over HTTPS.
- Add a snapshot repository to enable regular backups of your Elasticsearch clusters.
- Add some capacity to your Elastic Cloud Enterprise installation, resize your deployment, upgrade to a newer Elasticsearch version, and add some plugins.
- Learn how to work around host maintenance or a host failure by moving nodes off of an allocator.
- If you received a license from Elastic, manage the licenses for your Elastic Cloud Enterprise installation.
