Upgrade Elasticsearch from 7.x to 7.9

Opportunity Name:

Upgrade Elasticsearch from 7.x to 7.9

AWS Resource Type:

Amazon Elasticsearch Service

Opportunity Description:

CloudFix is all about finding AWS cost issues and fixing those. This opportunity to upgrade Elasticsearch from 7.x to 7.9 is an indirect cost saving fixer - it does not save cloud costs directly - but upgrading to 7.9 allows CloudFix to convert Elasticsearch from x86 to Graviton which achieves up to 44% price-performance.

Finder Criteria:

CloudFix checks the version of the Elasticsearch domains and generates the upgrade opportunities for eligible versions.

Fixer Execution:

Upgrading Elasticsearch 7.x to 7.9 is executed in-place and no downtime is expected.

Potential savings (range in % on annual basis):

Upgrading Elasticsearch from 7.x to 7.9 does not directly result in any cost savings. It enables CloudFix to move instances from x86 to Graviton.

Can CloudFix implement the fix automatically once I accept the recommendation?

Yes, this upgrade from a 7.x version to 7.9 is an in-place automatic update once the Fixer Template is approved.

Is it possible to roll back once CloudFix implements the fixer?

Can’t downgrade after upgrading Elasticsearch. In-place upgrades are irreversible.

Does this fix require downtime?

No. This is an in-place upgrade via CloudFix and AWS does not require any downtime. It is executed as a zero downtime fix.
