Setup WPSOLR and Aiven
From WPSOLR 21.4.
This video suppose you already have an account at Aiven.
You will see how to create an Aiven index with a few clicks.
What is Aiven?
Aiven is a service to host Elasticsearch indexes (among other services). Rather than installing Elasticsearch on your own servers, you get a subscription and let the service manage your indexes on your behalf. No need of manpower, or servers, anymore.
Here is the video tutorial:
1 – Signup for a free trial at Aiven
2 – Navigate to your Aiven dashboard
3 – Create your first Aiven Elasticsearch cluster
3.1 – Click on button “Create a new service”
3.2 – Set a name for your cluster
3.3 – Select the service type “Elasticsearch”
3.4 Select a plan (the size of each node/VM)
The plan will determine the limits affected to your cluster (disk, shards, support, ….)
3.5 Select a cloud and a region (where your nodes/VMs will be deployed)
3.6 Create the cluster
Wait a few moments, until your cluster is ready to accept your first index.
3.6 Copy the cluster service URL with its default access key/secret
4 – Create the Aiven Elasticsearch index from WPSOLR admin
