Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch supports a variety of specifications. When you purchase an Elasticsearch cluster, you can select specifications for the cluster based on your business requirements. This topic describes the supported specifications and cloud disk types.

Table 1. Specifications
Cluster type vCPU and memory Family
elasticsearch.n4.small 1 vCPU and 2 GiB of memory 1:2
elasticsearch.sn1ne.large 2 vCPUs and 4 GiB of memory
elasticsearch.sn2ne.large 2 vCPUs and 8 GiB of memory 1:4
elasticsearch.sn2ne.xlarge 4 vCPUs and 16 GiB of memory
elasticsearch.sn2ne.2xlarge 8 vCPUs and 32 GiB of memory
elasticsearch.sn2ne.4xlarge 16 vCPUs and 64 GiB of memory
  • Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch no longer provides data nodes with 1 vCPU and 2 GiB of memory or data nodes with 2 vCPUs and 2 GiB of memory due to inventory issues and the impact on performance stability. Existing data nodes with these specifications are not affected.
  • Data nodes with 1 vCPU and 2 GiB of memory are designed only for testing purposes. Do not use clusters that contain such data nodes for production purposes. The service-level agreement (SLA) does not apply to these clusters. Therefore, we recommend that you upgrade your data nodes with 1 vCPU and 2 GiB of memory.
  • Data node specifications supported in different regions may vary. The specifications on the buy page or the specifications provided in Pricing of Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch prevail.
