Running Elasticsearch clusters on Docker? Thinking about it? If “yes” then we’ve got a presentation for you that digs deep into the details.
(Note: we’ve also got a related blog post about monitoring the official Elasticsearch image on Docker that you might find useful)
Fresh from DevOps Days in Warsaw and delivered by Sematext engineer Rafal Kuć, “Running High Performance and Fault Tolerant Elasticsearch Clusters on Docker” is chock full of practical information that will no doubt answer many of the questions you might have about this process.
Some of the topics Rafal covers include:
- Containers vs. Virtual Machines
- Running the official Elasticsearch container
- Container constraints
- Good network practices
- Dealing with storage
- Data-only Docker volumes
- Scaling, time-based data
- Multiple tiers and tenants
- Indexing with and without routing
- Querying with and without routing
- Routing vs. no routing
