I am still afraid of this step. Yet you can avoid it by introducing new nodes, with vnodes enabled, and then remove old ones. This should work.

My problem is that I am not really confident in vnodes either...

Any share, on this transition, and then of the use of vnodes would be great indeed.

I've been wondering... is there anyone in the cassandra-user audience who has used "shuffle" feature successfully on a non-toy-or-testing cluster? If so, could you describe the experience you had and any problems you encountered?
