Con They do not support old versions without a 5x price increase
Con Limited Elasticsearch API on shared plans
Bonsai shared cluster plans take an opinionated approach to multitenancy. They limit user access to some of the low-level administration-oriented APIs for security and stability reasons.

Since users on shared plans have to share the node with other tenants, the stats on the
_node/stats endpoint would not be very useful for the single tenant since the reports there are for the whole node.
