I realize we don’t have a thread on the upgrade path to OpenSearch. For context, I am looking into various ODFE plugins and their potential upgrade path. What I’d like to hear about on this thread is what’s important to you for migration/upgrade?
We have ElasticSearch + Kibana (aka ES), Open Distro for Elasticsearch (OSS Elasticsearch+Kibana+OSS plugins, aka ODFE) migrating to OpenSearch + OpenSearch Dashboards + OpenSeach plugins (aka OpenSearch).
Some questions I can think of:
- Should OpenSearch be 100% backwards compatible with ES?
- Is it important to you that OpenSearch be a drop-in replacement for ES? For ODFE?
- For completeness, would you be ok if there was no upgrade path at all, because maybe you only plan to do new deployments with OpenSearch?
Your thoughts and additional questions would be much appreciated.
