Subject Cassandra at Amazon AWS
Date Wed, 16 Jan 2013 20:42:50 GMT

   I am currently using hadoop + cassandra at amazon AWS. Cassandra runs on
EC2 and my hadoop process runs at EMR. For cassandra storage, I am using
local EC2 EBS disks.
   My system is running fine for my tests, but to me it's not a good setup
for production. I need my system to perform well for specially for writes
on cassandra, but the amount of data could grow really big, taking several
Tb of total storage.
    My first guess was using S3 as a storage and I saw this can be done by
using Cloudian package, but I wouldn't like to become dependent on a
pre-package solution and I found it's kind of expensive for more than
    I saw some discussion at internet about using EBS or ephemeral disks
for storage at Amazon too.

    My question is: does someone on this list have the same problem as me?
What are you using as solution to Cassandra's storage when running it at
Amazon AWS?

    Any thoughts would be highly appreciatted.

Best regards,
