I'm a big fan of ES and have been using it for years now. Just wondering if anyone has made an attempt to make a serverless approach to ES?
Let me expand on what I mean:
I personally use Elasticsearch for a project, the problem is I'm paying to have servers run 24 hours a day for basically very infrequent searches (maybe a few an hour).
Is there is a version/plugin/library/service for Elasticsearch which simply caches the configuration for Elasticsearch, quickly mounts the storage disk drive, and boots up the ES server everytime a query is made?
I store the data on SSD elastic block storage on AWS anyways, but i could really save costs if I only paid for servers when a user is actually searching or if I could pay PER request like AWS Lambda. I pay far more for servers to even run the elasticsearch server than I do for the SSD storage with data ES has already indexed.
I'm open to even making an open source project about this, but open to everyone's thoughts on this?
Thanks in advance would love to hear feedback,
