Subject Re: Elastic IP for Cassandra in AWS
Date Tue, 17 Oct 2017 05:06:50 GMT
I wouldn't recommend putting your Cassandra nodes in an ASG. Scaling
production Cassandra clusters can be a tricky process that should be done
manually. There are a lot of things that can go wrong if you aren't
watching/controlling the process.

Terraform is a good option for automating complex AWS deployments. It also
allows you to scale your cluster incrementally once it's been deployed.
CloudFormation is another option. There are also fully managed services
that will take care of it all for you, such as Instaclustr (full disclosure
- I work for Instaclustr).
