Build Status

Simple example:

class { 'cassandra':
  cluster_name => 'YourCassandraCluster',

class { 'cassandra':
  cluster_name      => 'YourEc2CassandraCluster',
  seeds             => [ '', '', '', ],
  listen_address    => $ec2_local_ipv4,
  broadcast_address => $ec2_public_ipv4,
  endpoint_snitch   => 'Ec2MultiRegionSnitch',
