We're currently hosting our elasticsearch cluster on azure(not azure service, we set up our own cluster), and we are migrating to AWS. Am wondering what is the best approach.
I saw the repository-s3 plugin, if i understand it correctly, it needs our cluster to be on AWS already, is that correct? Because it uses EC2 IAM to do the authorization, and we are just VMs in azure. I tried and i saw it try to query 169.254.169.254/latest/user-data for IAM info. is this correct?
if this is the case, the only way i can think of is to take a fs snapshot and transfer that snapshot to s3 and go from there? any other suggestions?
