I suspect I will use 1 Cassandra-server when I start deploying my
application. I won't have load balancing and failover in this case, but I
can live with that. I want to prevent having to change my application code
when the need arises to scale to x servers.
Is it unwise to use Cassandra in production if you use less than n
servers? In other words: is it better to use another solution for <n
servers and switch to Cassandra once n is reached?
