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.

Hosted on AWS r4 instances.

Google Cloud Platform (GCP)

Hosted on custom memory-optimized GCP instances.
