thanks for your suggestions. The Node size is ~600 GB, cluster size ~4,5 TB. There is no strict time limitation as long as the data move can be done while the application is still online.
Do you have any gut feeling how long a dc-sync of this cluster size would take?
How much daa do you have and what is the timeline? If you can manage with a maintenance window the snapshot / move and restore method may be the fastest. Streaming data can take a long time to sync two DCs if there is a lot of data.

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?
