We’re running our ES cluster on a local VMware setup, which works fine. Now that this solution is becoming increasingly business critical. We’re looking to also include this in our disaster recovery as a service setup. The DR setup basically replicates our most critical VM’s to a service provider and lets us start them up on a secondary site.
Given this setup it would be great if we could include a subset of our ES cluster, eg one node that had a copy of all the data, for replication to the secondary site.
Any inputs on how to achieve this? Have been looking into shard allocation awareness, but not sure that is the most applicable solution to the problem.
