Overview of the Elastic Stack📜
ECK enables the provisioning of Elasticsearch using the Operator Pattern.
This enables setup and management of Elasticsearch, Kibana, APM Server, Enterprise Search, and Beats on Kubernetes. The chart provides customizable Custom Resources for deploying your elasticsearch clusters.
Before you can create the custom resources , you would have to deploy the ECK Operator.
This chart installs Custom Resources for the Elasticsearch and Kibana resource type. However , to find more information on the CRs for more customization , look at the elasticsearch and kibana sample manifests.
