Looking for Elasticsearch Cluster Server Specifications Documentation

Could someone point me to any documentations or whitepapers on the topics of the Elasticsearch Cluster Servers Specifications?

I could not find what I need on The Elastic Stack and Product Documentation Site, is there a better link?

We are hosting the cluster on-premises (Windows OS); the recommendations back then were to use physical servers for the data nodes. Years later, the Operation Folks wanted to retire some of the servers. They want to use virtual servers instead and justification required for physical ones.

  • Are the physical servers still the recommendation for the data nodes?
  • Is there a documentation that layout the official recommendations?
  • Or at least good discussions about the pro and cons that I can use to presents my case.
