What is Elasticsearch?

“Elasticsearch is a distributed, open source search and analytics engine, designed for horizontal scalability, reliability, and easy management. It combines the speed of search with the power of analytics via a sophisticated, developer-friendly query language covering structured, unstructured, and time-series data.”

Technical Details

There are no publicly exposed ports for Elasticsearch. The role is designed to be used with another Docker container on the ‘provisioner’ network.

The data is stored on disk under /usr/local/elasticsearch/data
