Open Telekom Cloud for Business Customers

Same-version upgrade, cross-engine upgrade, and cross-version upgrade are now in CSS supported.

Same-version upgrade is to upgrade the kernel patch of a cluster to fix problems or optimize performance. Cross-engine upgrade is to upgrade an Elasticsearch cluster to an OpenSearch cluster. Cross-version upgrade is to upgrade the cluster version to enhance functions or incorporate versions.

Nodes in the cluster are upgraded one by one so that services are not interrupted. The upgrade process is as follows: bring a node offline, migrate its data to another node, create a new node of the target version, and mount the NIC ports of the offline node to the new node to retain the node IP address. After a new node is added to the cluster, other nodes will be updated in the same way in sequence. If there is a large amount of data in a cluster, the upgrade duration depends on the data migration duration.

Important notes:
For a cluster without master nodes, the number of remaining data nodes (including cold data nodes and other types of nodes) after scale-in must be greater than half of the original node number, and greater than the maximum number of index replicas.
For a cluster with master nodes, the number of removed master nodes in a scale-in must be fewer than half of the original master node number. After scale-in, there has to be an odd number of master nodes, and there has to be at least three of them.
A cluster with two nodes cannot be scaled in. You can create a cluster using a single node. More info here in constrains.
