Best way to add Elasticsearch to App
I have Django app running on DO, and I want to add Elasticsearch to it. I have the two containers running on my desktop with Docker compose, and I’m trying to figure out what the simplest (and cheapest!) way to deploy it is.
I’m using the stock docker image for ES. This is a prototype, and the data is all sourced from a Postgres managed database, so I’m ok with reloading the data on deployment or droplet failure.
I was thinking of adding it as a component to my existing app, but am not sure how to do that. Or I could set it up on a droplet fairly easily. Or is it time to start with Kubernetes? (https://stackoverflow.blog/2021/07/27/podcast-361-why-startups-should-use-kubernetes-from-day-one/)
what’s a good way to do this?
