Scale AWS OpenSearch



How can you scale AWS OpenSearch e.g. to switch off the cluster at night and cut some costs? I see that Step Functions does not have this ability.

You cannot shutdown a Amazon OpenSearch domain and bring it back on. You can down scale (e.g., change node type), but i would not recommend it, as it will trigger a blue green deployment as all data will need to be moved to the new instances. You can delete the domain and restore it from a manual snapshot.
