Open Distro for Elasticsearch development has moved to OpenSearch. The ODFE plugins will continue to work with legacy versions of Elasticsearch OSS, but we recommend upgrading to OpenSearch to take advantage of the latest features and improvements.
Amazon Machine Image
For convenience, Open Distro for Elasticsearch publishes Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) for use with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). These images use Amazon Linux 2 for their base image and come with Open Distro for Elasticsearch preinstalled.
You can find the images in the Community AMIs section of the EC2 console if you search for
Open Distro for Elasticsearch.
