Elasticsearch & Memcached Support

We've added unmanaged Elasticsearch & Memcached support! You can add this role to servers when you're editing or creating them. This will install and configure Elasticsearch and/or memcached on your servers.

Once installed, you can add Elasticsearch to your applications. This will set the ELASTICSEARCH_URL env var to your server's IP address. Elasticsearch uses SSL, so Hatchbox will automatically install the self-signed SSL certificate on your application servers to allow HTTPS access.

Memcached is an excellent choice as a cache store for your applications. While Redis defaults to persisting all keys, Memcached is built specifically for handling caches and clearing out least recently used cache keys as needed.

We've configured memcached with SASL2 authentication so attaching Memcached to your applications will setup several environment variables with the connection information.
