Subject Re: Running hadoop jobs against data in remote data center

See and

It's possible to run multi DC and use LOCAL_QUORUM consistency level in your production centre
to allow the prod code to get on with it's life without worrying about the other DC.

Hope that helps.

the other side of the US from us, not to mention that we don't want them impacting performance
in production.  What's the best way to handle this?

 This way, the servers automatically get updated with the latest changes, and we get a bit
of extra redundancy for our production machine.  Of course, the glaring weakness of this strategy
is that our stats servers aren't in a datacenter with any kind of production guarantees. 
The network connection is relatively slow and unreliable, the servers may go out at any time,
and I generally don't want to tie our production performance or reliability to these servers.
