im manually running an ELK cluster (latest versions) on EC2.
just looking at evaluating the elasticsearch service on aws, to see if theres any benefit (less management). i had a brief attempt, but nothing would work only changing the logstash output to the elasticsearch domain address.
is anybody using it? are there any caveats? any setup requirements, like needing any additional plugins or anything?
from reading the docs, it only seems to support up to ES 1.5.3 atm, which seems odd?
