Subject Scaling from 1 to x (was: one server or more servers?)

I suspect I will use 1 Cassandra-server when I start deploying my  
application. I won't have load balancing and failover in this case, but I  
can live with that. I want to prevent having to change my application code  
when the need arises to scale to x servers.

Is it unwise to use Cassandra in production if you use less than n  
servers? In other words: is it better to use another solution for <n  
servers and switch to Cassandra once n is reached?
