Does Helm use official ECK under the hood?


After reading the doc of Helm charts I saw it was grounded on the Docker images of ElasticSearch.
But under the hood it seem strange that the features / codebase is not shared with ECK.

I would like to clarifiy to know if the official Helm charts provide the same features as describe here ? Or this only a normal version of ES.

I know the question can seem weird, but the number of features worth to put aside your official Chart .

Thank you in advance :slight_smile:

The helm charts ( do not use ECK.

The code is not shared primarily because they have different origins. The helm-chart repository was created several months before ECK. Further, ECK is more closely aligned with Elastic Cloud having Elasticsearch, kibana, and apm server. The helm charts do this plus logstash and beats.

Use what is best for you. :slight_smile:
