I’m going to use the OpenSearch as a database for the analytics backend. I need to store the audit data and use the Dashboards as a frontend. I expect the amount of raw data to be written about 5-10Gb per year.
The main cases is to monitor the audit analytics + rare fetch by id.
I can afford the AWS EC2 t4g.large (4 cores, 8 Gb RAM) for my purposes.
Assuming, I’m starting from the single node, is it ok to run OpenSearch+Dashboards in the docker container on such machine?
Will I be able to add an additional OpenSearch node to this setup?
Is it safe to use ec2 snapshots for the backup?
I theoreticaly can setup an RDS for the raw data, but I’m afraid I will need to setup the data ingestion into OpenSearch which I’m trying to avoid, as I will need to pay for RDS + EC2
Are there any issues, pitfals with such case?
I appreciate any thoughts, feedback, anything related to my questions.
AWS EC2 t4g.large ?
