I like to setup small test instances of technologies I use in the real world. Particularly those that are free or Open Source. One of these is the Elasticstack. This consists of a number of different products from Elastic. I have written a series of guides, partly for my own sake to remember everything I have done, but also just in case someone else is looking at making a small cluster for their own purposes.
Guides in this series:
- Building Your Environment in AWS
- Setting up and Installing Elasticsearch
- Setting up Kibana
- Using a Proxy for Kibana with HAProxy
- Enabling Security and Using Password Authentication
- Making Kibana Internet Accessible with Cloudfront
- Securing Cloudfront with Security Groups
- Inserting Data into Elasticsearch with Logstash
So without further ado, if you would like to get started, check out Part 1: Setting up an AWS Environment for a Personal Elasticstack. Where we setup the initial environment we need for a cluster.
