I am new to Elasticsearch.
I have noticed that Elasticsearch is very generous when it comes to consuming storage. This makes it a challenge when the storage requirements start growing and the type of storage becomes costly (eg: SSD)
Is there a way to manage this like with the use of compression?
Does Elastic support compression methods?
If so do you need licenses to do it or is it free?
What is the best practice of keeping the storage at a manageable level ?
