Moving to production - Storage and servers

Hi everyone,

After my first
https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!topic/elasticsearch/US-BA4R_Qdc
and second question
https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!topic/elasticsearch/FGKUmzn-WSs
regarding clusters' examples and multy-tenancy with garantee of service, I
have one more on my way to production :

Could you describe the pros and cons of the :

  1. Disks : DAS (Direct Attached Storage) - JBOD (Just a Bunch Of
    Disks) / SAN (Storage Area Network)? I take it that NAS is most of
    the time to be avoided
    2. Servers : bare metal servers / virtual servers ?

For those interested :

  • JBOD / SAN storage discussion in "To Raid or not to Raid":

https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!searchin/elasticsearch/hardware/elasticsearch/HSj2fZGdU1Y/4mFCBTCb-JcJ

  • Doc which states about SSDs, RAID0, NAS, networks

Thanks!

SAN and NAS are in the same boat, using network storage with ES is
problematic. DAS and JBOD are fine.
ES will run fine on hardware or virtualised.

It really comes down to your needs and budget.

Agree with Mark - for search applications in general you really don't want
your index in network storage. The cacheing etc. doesn't play nicely with
the access patterns. Indexes should be on local disk. I've lost track of
the amount of times we've had to explain this...
