Has anybody toyed with ES in AWS Elastic Beanstalk?


(Stephen-2) #1

Hey all,

I'm considering porting my application over to using Elastic
Beanstalk. My fear, though, is if I do it I may paint myself into a
corner. Has anyone successfully deployed an app over to Beanstalk
that also uses ElasticSearch?

Would love any tips/tricks you might have encountered along the way,
not the least of which would include whether or not to embed ES in the
app (or run it separately), and how that would work with the various
"environments" that Beanstalk has.

It might just work, but I am not all that savvy with AWS quite yet.

Thanks in advance,

Stephen.

I don't see a reason why it won't work..., either running it embedded or using it remotely.

I guess the only consideration if you're using embedded + cloud discovery is
whether you can set tags etc on the Beanstalk Instances in order for the
nodes to find one another.
