“Here at Yandex, we highly value open-source culture. So when we decided to develop a solution based on OpenSearch, we were interested first and foremost making a full-fledged, competitive product using exclusively free components, ” said Evgeny Arkhipov, Head of Managed Database Platform Development. “In the future, we plan to add to our platform native support for more ways of integrating the engine.”
After the release of the Public Preview in November, we expanded the set of operations with the cluster. Now standard operations with host groups are supported, as well as:
- Restoring data from backups
- Monitoring clusters, host groups, or individual hosts
- using third-party authentication and authorization providers (SAML)
These changes make it possible to create clusters with complex topologies: one cluster can include several host groups with different roles and characteristics. This will allow you to choose the optimal configuration for each task.
