I want to understand the difference between AWS Elasticsearch service vs on-premise version. Does AWS provides a fully managed service for Elasticsearch (like DynamoDB, SQS etc) Do we have to manage at the node level and ensure that Elasticsearch has proper configuration for production kind of environment? Appreciate your feedback on this.

It's a managed service operated by AWS.

That being said I'd look at https://cloud.elastic.co/ which can run on AWS, GCP and Azure. 14 days for free. It's managed by elastic, creator of elasticsearch.

Cloud by elastic is one way to have access to all features, all managed by us. Think about what is there yet like Security, Monitoring, Reporting, SQL, Canvas, APM, Logs UI, Infra UI, SIEM, Maps UI and what is coming next :) ...
