Subject Viability of running on EC2
Date Sat, 13 Jun 2009 16:20:36 GMT

  I was wondering what the viability of running cassandra on ec2 was.
I believe that it currently runs on some pretty hefty hardware at
facebook, so I'm wondering what the minimum hardware config is
(in other words can I run it on a cluster of 2core 4GB machines)?
Also, running on Amazon means no multicast, network partitions and
machines just disappearing.  How does cassandra deal with these

Thanks for information,
