setting EventStore up on aws


I’m just about to set up EventStore on aws. Are there any best practices in terms of sizing instances/the best instance types to use?

Any help/points appreciated.



Hi Sean,
It would help to get some requirements from your side…

For instance, I have seen setups that are running on t2.medium instances (2 vCPUs, and 4GiB of ram).


Ok, we’re just setting up a poc, with ES as our “source of truth!”

I’ve no idea what our throughput will be as yet—although given we’re restricting the people who have access, I’d imagine it won’t be large.

What else will help? Do you have anything (chef cookbooks) and the like to help with deployment, we’re using packer, although Docker is something
we’re also evaluating.

Any help appreciated.

Kind regards
