I am upgrading from 2.4.3 to 2.4.3 p2 and just want to know, do I need both OpenSearch and Elasticsearch, or is just 1 sufficient.

Thank you.

I'm not 100% sure but I believe you still need both. I think opensearch is on the frontend and elasticsearch handles the backend.


You only need one. Who you can use will be dependant on your hosting provider.

OpenSearch is a fork of ElasticSearch by AWS. As I understand it, OpenSearch was essentially created because ElasticSearch updated it's license to prevent others from operating a managed ElasticSearch service.


Magento 2.4.3-p2 supports both ElasticSearch 7.16 & OpenSearch 1.2 Both are search engines, so you can pick either of these.


You have to use elasticsearch, as opensearch is only supported for M2.4.5 for now. Please review the below image for the system requirements.
