I am new to this forum. I have been playing around a bit with ES. The thing that confuses me is that how to size a ES setup.
For example if we go with the official channels (with the SEs) they recommend to have hot nodes only with 6TB of storage. Hence for large amounts of data we have to maintain a huge number of nodes.
But when I talk with others who use this as opensource they seem to manage a whole lot of more data with a very small number of nodes.
Any ideas on how the sizing should be exactly handled?
