Subject Re: Need advice for multi DC C* setup

The EC2 nodes must be in the default VPC.

create a ring in the VPC in region B. Use VPC peering to connect the
default and the region B VPC.
The two rings should join the existing one. Alter the replication strategy
to network replication so that the data is replicated to the new rings.
Repair the keyspaces.
Once it is done, you can decommission the existing ring.

For spark,if you are using datastax version, it comes with spark. You just
need to change a config and spark starts along with cassandra. A separate
ring is advised for analytics stuff.
