I/O Optimized Template

New to Elasticsearch or not sure yet what you need? This template is suitable for many search and general all-purpose workloads that don’t require more specialized resources. Your Elasticsearch data nodes are optimized for high I/O throughput, and the template is geared towards providing a balance of compute (CPU), memory, and storage resources.

Included with this template:

Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Elasticsearch:

    • Data nodes: Start at 4 GB memory x 2 availability zones. Hosted on AWS i3 instances.
    • Master nodes: One master node per availability zone, plus a tiebreaker master node when you use two zones. With fewer than five data nodes, master nodes are co-located with the data nodes; with five or more data nodes, dedicated master-eligible nodes are used. Hosted on AWS r4 instances.
  • Kibana: Starts at 1 GB memory x 1 availability zone. Hosted on AWS r4 instances.
  • Machine learning (ML): Disabled by default. The functionality is pre-wired into the template, but you must explicitly enable it in the UI. Hosted on AWS m5 instances.
