You don’t have to use EC2 snitch on AWS but if you have already started with it , it may put a node in a different DC.
If your data density won’t be ridiculous You could add 3 to different DC/ Region and then sync up. After the new DC is operational you can remove one at a time on the old DC and at the same time add to the new one.

I have a 6-node cluster I'm migrating to the new i3 types.But at the same time I want to migrate to a different AZ.What happens if I do the "running node replace method" with 1 node at a time moving to the new AZ. Meaning, I'll have temporarily;5 nodes in AZ 1c1 new node in AZ 1e.I'll wash-rinse-repeat till all 6 are on the new machine type and in the new AZ.Any thoughts about whether this gets weird with the Ec2Snitch and a RF 3?
