Sorry for a somewhat duplicate posting - I see you've answered this elsewhere on the forums. But I'd like to run an instance of Cassandra on an EBS-backed EC2 instance. This is for development purposes and we'd like to be able to turn on/off the instance in order to save money (we only need it to run during office hours [~200 hours/month]).
I've been able to use the existing DataStax AMI's successfully (thanks!), but I'd like to create a new instance which is EBS-backed. I understand the various caveats regarding performance and potential reliability, but - again - these are just Developer instances.
Reading the other posts (http://www.datastax.com/dev/blog/personalizing-your-own-brisk-ami) on this subject, I see that a critical link to some command line scripts is no longer valid: https://github.com/riptano/BriskClusterAMI/blob/master/.presetup/pre-setup.sh. This returns a 404 error.
Can you update any documentation (or forward any other applicable postings) on how to do this? I'm a Lunix and EC2 newbie (I'm a .NET developer by history [gasp!]), so any "dumbing-down" would be appreciated.
Thanking you in advance,
