ElasticSearch Configuration & Plan

I am considering importing a wordpress site that has 3000 posts, with a few custom taxonomies and acf fields. I want to use ElasticSearch. Are there any recommendations for the minimum plan that I choose? Because there are many different pricing options, I want to make sure I am looking at the right possibilities. Would this digital ocean plan work?

  • RAM 4GB
  • Processor 2 Core
  • Storage 80GB
  • Bandwidth 4TB

Having a lot of posts isn’t what slows down WordPress; having a lot of plugins and web traffic will. If you’re a small company that is just starting out you could get by with any of the plans, however, I did notice a significant speed increase from the 1GB plan to the 2GB plan, and from the the 2GB plan to the 4GB plan, but I didn’t notice much of a speed increase when I went to 8GB, so for that reason I use the 4GB plan for all of my servers.
