We currently have the following setup at Elastic:
- x1 Data Configuration in 3 zones = 3 nodes in total
- x1 Kabana node
- x1 APM node
Due to shards running low in the coming months, we want to add another node ie 4 Data Configuration nodes.
Playing around with the Elastic Calculator online, I am not sure how we do this, as we are already using x3 zones. What is the most cost effective method? If I add just one more nodes in the current setup, this will entail first increasing the RAM to 60GB ie a fourfold increase in price, and then increasing the node by +1 , which is now an eight-fold increase in price as we will then increase Data Configuration to x6 nodes + x3 Master nodes which are now required in 3 zones.
Is there an easy way to do this, all we want to do is simply add one more data node. We can even use just x2 zones as opposed to currently 3?
Thanks in advance
