Question about Elastic Search: In Elastic Search, can we store data on a local machine and allow other machines to access the data stored on the local machine?

In Microsoft SQL server, we can store data on a local machine, deploy the server, and allow other machines to access that data. How would this be analogous to Elasticsearch? I've been sifting through the documentation and cannot find where it would guide me how to do this. If this is possible with Elasticsearch, could someone point me to where in the documentation it shows me how to do this?

Elasticsearch's APIs are accessible via HTTP. By default Elasticsearch only listens to localhost, so you need to update Important Elasticsearch configuration | Elasticsearch Guide [8.2] | Elastic for it to listen to a non-loopback address.
