Elastic search deployement on rackspace or other network


(Benoit Chesneau) #1

Hi all,

I'm not sure what's the best way to extend/reduce an elasticsearch
cluster in networks like rackspace or other. I was thinking to a
system that would allow me to tell to one node I added a machine and
let this node ring others about it since I can't do multicast.

Is this actually possible ? How ?

This is possible using unicast discovery. Actually, elasticsearch takes
discovery a step further for cloud platforms by integrating with the cloud
API to provide discovery, but its only enabled for AWS now (rackspace is the
next one to support).

When do you expect RackSpace Cloudfiles to be supported?

We can add it post 0.13, both cloudfiles and rackspace (cloudservers) based
disco. They don't have good Java libraries like AWS does (an official SDK),
which is annoying...
