This is a quick guide on how to deploy the Elastic stack on GKE using Storage Classes, Headless Services, and Stateful Sets. I will provide walk-throughs for building some aspects of the cluster through the Google Cloud Shell (command line) as well as the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) console. This cluster is meant to help readers learn how to deploy capabilities to GKE and is not representative individual requirements for a production environment.
