Hi, I am currently involved in a project to scale-up an existing Windows Cassandra cluster because we are planning to migrate large amounts of historic data. However, I am a bit skeptical to keep using Windows for the nodes. I have done some research about Cassandra on Windows and found some releasenotes that there is official support for Windows since 2.2.x. but since then I cannot find any mention of Windows support.
I was wondering what the current state of Cassandra is on windows? Second question; I we do decide to switch to Linux, would the following migration path work? It is vital that there is no downtime for the client application.. 1. Set-up a new Linux cluster and have our incoming data stream into the existing Windows and new Linux cluster. 2. Use the SSTableloader to stream the existing SSTables to the Linux cluster. 3. Switch the endpoint of the application to the new Linux cluster. Would this work even if we have incoming live data that share the partitionkeys with the data that needs to be migrated? Could the timestamps or tombstones cause a problem?
