High Availability on OpenShift/AWS across 3 availability zones

We need a high availability deployment of API Connect (all components but API manager specifically) on OpenShift/AWS.
OpenShift cluster based on 3 EC2 instances across 3 AWS availability zones.
For Cassandra we us EBS block storage, which is local to an AZ. The deployment should be robust against failure of a single EC2 instance or a complete AZ. This must also work as we scale out to 6 or 9 EC2 instances. Cassandra should take care that replicas are evenly distributed across AZs
