Re: Options to replace hardware of the cluster

For no downtime and no lost data, I would make a new DC in the same cluster, and wait for the data / MVs to stream over. Otherwise, the best way is to snapshot everything and bring up the nodes all at once.

we need to move our existing cassandra cluster to new hardware nodes. Currently the cluster size is 8 members, they need to be moved to 8 new machines. Cassandra version in use is 3.11.1.  Unfortunately we use materialized views in production. I know that they have been marked retroactively as experimental.

What is a good way to move to the new machines? One-by-One, or setup a new cluster as a separate DC? The move should be done without downtime of the application.


Do you have some advice for this kind of maintenance task?


Kind regards,
