This seems like the perfect application for lots of small servers with chunky amounts of SSD. Would be nice to have more ram in the nodes, but 2GB is a start, SSD helps, and maybe the C2/etc will have more ram.
We already offer elastic search in the ELK InstantApp which contains Elastic, Logstash and Kibana.
Did you tried it?
Thanks, I’ll look at it! I saw something about it but didn’t realize what it was or that it was hosted here. I didn’t guess from the description that it wasn’t just for logs.
I just tried out the ELK instantapp (only for a minute though) and looked at the FAQ about it, but I had hoped for something more geared towards automatic setup of a multi-server Elastic system. The Instantapp looks more single server. If there is a multi-server optionin the ELK setup, it would be great if the FAQ mentioned it and linked to further info. Otherwise maybe it’s a more complicated packaging task but it really seems like a good use case for Scaleway.
FWIW, I ran Solr on a 5 server x86 setup with about 1TB of text indexed, but there was a lot of manual configuration etc. My dream would be to click on a Scaleway instantapp saying I wanted to run Elastic on 10 or 20 C1’s and have it spin them all up and deploy automatically, and be able to increase or decrease the cluster size dynamically. I know Elastic itself is better setup for that than Solr but haven’t looked into exactly how to do it.
