a9s Elasticsearch for PCF (Beta)
IMPORTANT: The a9s Elasticsearch for PCF tile is currently in beta and is intended for evaluation and test purposes only. Do not use this product in a PCF production environment.
This documentation describes the a9s Elasticsearch for Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) tile.
a9s Elasticsearch for PCF enables on-demand provisioning of VM-based, dedicated Elasticsearch servers and clusters. Developers can create instances of an Elasticsearch server or a cluster using Apps Manager or the Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface (cf CLI) tool and bind these instances to an app. Depending on the chosen service plan, a service instance may be associated with a single, dedicated VM or a set of VMs consisting of multiple VMs comprising a cluster of Elasticsearch servers.
a9s Elasticsearch for PCF includes the following key features:
|On‐Demand Service Instance Provisioning||
|Service Instance Isolation||
The following features have already been developed and tested on paas.anynines.com. These features will be included in upcoming a9s Elasticsearch for PCF tile releases.
|On‐Demand Encrypted Remote Connectivity||You can establish a private encrypted tunnel to your service instance on‐demand. Developers can use this connection to perform manual backups. As soon as the public connection is obsolete, you can terminate the tunnel to prevent further access. An additional component, the Service Jumper Module, provides this functionality.|
|Service Instance Capacity Upgrade||You can upgrade of the RAM, CPU, and storage capacity for your Elasticsearch instances.|
|Logging and Monitoring||Each Elasticsearch service instance delivers log messages and Elasticsearch-specific metrics to one or more syslog/graphite endpoints. Developers can configure the syslog/graphite endpoint to receive this data.|
