The Centralised Elasticsearch Service at CERN runs the infrastructure to
provide Elasticsearch clusters for more than 100 different use cases.

This contribution presents how the infrastructure is managed, covering the
resource distribution, instance creation, cluster monitoring and user
support. The contribution will present the components that have been identified as
critical in order to share resources and minimize the amount of clusters and
machines needed to run the service.In particular, all the automation for the
instance configuration, including index template management, backups and
Kibana settings, will be explained in detail.
