Subject Re: Which of these VPS configurations would perform better for Cassandra ?
Date Tue, 06 Aug 2013 22:40:24 GMT
3 node EC2 m1.xlarge is ~ $1000/k month + any incidental costs ( s3
backups, transfer out of the AZ ), etc ) or ~$300/month after a ~$1400
upfront 1 year reservation fee.

There are some uncomfortable spots when compaction kicks on concurrently
for several large CF's but otherwise its been performant and so far stable
using ephemeral raid0 ala ( Datastax's 2.4 AMI ).
