Subject Re: Does Cassandra run better on Amazon EC2 or Rackspace cloud servers?

Since it's all pay-for-use, you could build your system on both, then do
whatever stress testing you want.

The cassandra part of your app should be unchanged between different cloud
providers.

Personally, I'm using EC2 and don't have any complaints.
