Hi Will,


<http://wiki.apache.org/cassandra/Operations#Backing_up_data>If the snapshot
is written to the ephemeral storage ... there isn't a cost. (i need to
confirm that)

You can then move this to an S3 bucket with RDS if you want or full
99.999999999% redundancy and have it available to developers

This is what I had in my head....
