Sizing your Elasticsearch Cluster for PeopleSoft Financials 9.2

Searching in several documents, I could not find figures that helps sizing your Elasticsearch Cluster for Production.

Here are some findings after indexing Production data, that will help understand better the capacity you need in term of storage:

General Ledger |  Storage required for Base Language = 1.1 GB = 670'000 documents in Elasticsearch
  - JRNL_HEADER - Journal Header Data - 1'200'00 lines
  - JRNL_LN - Journal Line Data - 100'000'000 lines

Account Payabale  |  Storage required for Base Language = 0.5 GB = 330'000 documents in Elasticsearch 
  - VOUCHER - AP Voucher Header Table - 3'000'000
  - VOUCHER_LINE - Voucher Line - 6'500'000

Payments  |  Storage required for Base Language = 1.2 GB = 480'000 documents in Elasticsearch
  - PAYMENT_TBL - AP Disbursements - 3'000'000 lines
Vendors  |  Storage required for Base Language = 1.0 GB = 200'000 documents in Elasticsearch
  - Vendor - Vendor Header Table - 280'000 lines

So anticipate to get a cluster we enough CPU and RAM, but standard server in any Cloud would be enough in term of storage.

Elasticsearch is a Cloud engine for PeopleSoft

Oracle has not released PeopleSoft Elasticsearch yet but you should look at options to consume this as a service in the Cloud.

astic can propose this as part of it's Elastic Cloud offer, but also Cloud services like can do so.

The great value in this is that you can use a high available Cluster without any knowledge about the technology and just consume this as a service.

Definitely cloud is an engine for PeopleSoft.

@OOW16 PeopleSoft and the Oracle Cloud Advantage

It's now been 10 month Oracle delivered PeopleSoft Cloud Architecture.
The first version was clearly oriented on Linux and Oracle database (db on Linux) which matches the Oracle Cloud ecosystem.

The next big step will add PeopleSoft Cloud Manager to model your Infrastructure and deploy in Oracle Cloud.

Though Oracle announced Deployment Packages (DPK) on  all platforms (IBM Power, HP-UX, Solaris ...) in the next PeopleTools 8.56 (in 2017) this does not leave big room for other strategies unless competitors delivers:
  - tools to deploy PeopleSoft on other hardware IBM Power, HP-UX ...
  - build Cloud offer on IBM Power or HP-UX ...

This is clearly not a direction to look at, and we should better concentrate on the battle between Azure, AWS and Oracle Cloud.
