Hi Brooke, 

Thank you for your advices. Finally, no technical standards (provided by DataStax or Apache)
exists for deploying Cassandra in a production environment? 

In comparison with some RDBMS (Oracle, MySQL), some standards (OFA for instance) exists and
are provided by Oracle. 

Best regards

Hi Mehdi, 
In addition, give some thought to your cluster topology. For maximum fault tolerance and availability
I would recommend using at least three nodes with a replication factor of three. Ideally,
you should also use Cassandra logical racks. This will reduce the risk of outage and make
ongoing management of the cluster a lot easier.
