We do have QA cluster, but before even trying the 1.1.0 -> 1.1.9 / 1.2.1 
upgrade on it (we were a bit undecided about the version ;-) ), I did 
some experiments using ccm ( ) on my 
workstation with a < 0.01% sample of productin data which made me aware 
of some big problems I didn't expected. OK, there were two more problems 
I discovered later, on real cluster, but they were minor issues that 
didn't affect cluster availability - all the major problems occured and 
were solved during my "local" tests.

If test cluster is too expensive (but isn't data loss expensive too?) I 
strongly encourage you, at least, to do some tests using ccm :-)
