I am building a cluster(initially starting with a 2-3 nodes cluster). I have came across two seemingly good options for hosting, Linode & Digital Ocean. VPS configuration for both listed below:


Linode:-
------------------
XEN Virtualization
2 GB RAM
8 cores CPU (2x priority) (8 processor Xen instances)
96 GB Storage


Digital Ocean:-
-------------------------
KVM Virtualization
2GB Memory
2 Cores
40GB **SSD Disk***
Digitial Ocean's VPS is at half price of above listed Linode VPS, 


Could you clarify which of these two VPS would be better as Cassandra nodes ?
