To reinforce that point, look at the data stax site or the last conference for some of the
performance metrics comparing 1.2 to 1.0 and before. 

While you are worrying about the transport to cassandra, the project making things go faster.
IMHO you will get more value for money ensuring you have timely access to the work other people
