Elasticsearch + docker, benefits?


Hi all,

With containers being all the rage, it's easy to find guides on how to deploy Elasticsearch with Docker. I understand benefits for dev and test environments, but I struggle to see benefits of using ES with Docker in production.

Our use case is a small ES cluster that might grow in the future, where we would provision VMs using Terraform and configure them with Ansible. Given that ES is the only thing that will be running on those VMs and that we can easily provision and configure additional nodes in case we need more resources or in case a VM goes down, would there be any advantages of bringing Docker into this picture?

Thank you!
