We chose to manage both MongoDB and Elasticsearch ourselves and not use a hosted solution for two main reasons. First, we wanted full control over both systems.

And second, the amount of data we process meant that a hosted solution was more expensive than managing it directly on EC2 ourselves.

The total client to server roundtrip time is ~380ms. As a result, we would expect a regular HTTP connection to yield a TTFB of ~1140ms: 380ms for DNS, 380ms for TCP handshake, and 380ms for the HTTP request and (instant) response. For HTTPS, we would add another two RTTs to negotiate all the required parameters: 1140ms + 760ms, or ~1900ms (5 RTTs) in total. Well, that's …
