As of now I think only rackspace.com support cassandra in der cloud webhosting which will cost around $150 to $200 a month. Der is no cheap kinda thing in cassandra because data is distributed in multiple servers.
I advice you to test on ur LAN only. You can do benchmark testing to test real conditions.
I use 64 bit linux (ubuntu) with 4GB RAM that is more than sufficient to play around.
I am just curious to know if there is any hosting company that provides servers at a very low cost, wherein I can install cassandra on WAN. I have cassandra setup in my LAN and want to test it in real conditions, taking dedicated servers just for testing purposes is not at all feasible for me not even pay-as-you go types. I'd really appreciate if anybody can share information on such hosting providers.
