I really like Elastic search and have been impressed using qbox for a small ElasticSearch deployment, but recently needed to stand up a cluster for myself and decided to give it a go using Chef and Amazon OpsWorks. Once over the initial hurdles of the still-young OpsWorks, I’ve had a good experience using these in conjunction when deploying the Ultravisual infrastructure.

After a small amount of WTF’s (26, to be exact), I’m happy to be able to release a Chef cookbook for deploying ElasticSearch via AWS OpsWorks. Happy searching
