Hosted vs. Self-Managed

  • Using a self-managed cluster appears cheaper as far as monthly quoted costs go
  • Self-managed clusters allows greater control over configuration settings
  • Greater control over access to data
  • Costs for self-managed option should take operations effort in consideration
  • Hosted ElasticSearch is likely operated by ElasticSearch specialists than enterprise operation generalists
  • Ideally hosted option eliminates the need for over-planning
  • Aws hosted ElasticSearch asks for number and type of ec2 instances to run on
  • pre-sale engineers asking for data volumes and usage patterns instead
  • Sample quote from $2,950/mo for 1.5TB of raw data coming at 50kbps for index-mostly usage pattern
  • Compare that to cost of self-management: hardware and ongoing operation cost
