Cluster per environment?


#1

Hi

Are people typically running different ES clusters per devlopment environment?

We have:
Development
Beta
Staging
Preprod
Production
development environments for application development. And we are going to be using Elasticsearch (ELK) as a critical part of our Analytics stack. Just curious if people have been spinning up new stacks per environment or playing with naming prefixes for ES indexes, or something else?
Thanks!

Depends on your requirements.
You could have a single cluster and just put each non-prod env in it's own set of indices.

Yeh i'm not fond of the idea of setting up environment specific stacks.. too much hassle.
so you could prefix non-production indexes with the environment, and leave all production indexes as normal (no prefix). Anything else you have seen? and smart hack here ?

I wouldn't mix prod with non-prod, but yeah that's the general idea.
