Kick start your Elasticsearch experiment, using Docker for your development project.

I’ve created three Node static Elasticsearch 7.0.0 clusters, using Docker Compose. Docker Compose also includes the new open sourced Kibana 7.0.0, running behind NGINX.

Release notes

This cluster is not recommended to use in a production environment, but it provides you with a starting point.

Services included in the GitHub repository:

  • Three Node Elasticsearch version 7.2.0.
  • Kibana version 7.2.0.
  • Audit Beat version 7.2.0.
