Elasticsearch Zone Awareness is disabled

Risk Level

Informational (4)



Zone awareness (aka cross zone replication) is disabled for an Elasticsearch cluster. This feature allows you to replicate nodes and data across two availability zones, which decreases your risk of downtime and/or data loss in case a node fails.
  • Recommended Mitigation

    Achieve high levels of reliability, availability, fault tolerance, and data security by enabling zone awareness for your Elasticsearch clusters.
