 ###Why use the embedded Geode Topology over the Client/Server Topology?
 Geode is a product that contains many options for deployment, only one of them is embedding
the server within your application.  The Client/Server approach is an In Memory Data Grid
(IMDG) that employs a horizontal scaling and failover approach. The additional Geode component
when compared to the embedded topology is the Geode Locator.  Locators keep track of the nodes
within the IMDG and coordinate queries.  This enables Geode clients in applications to access
an abstraction for the “location” of where the Geode nodes are on the network and their
exact topology implementation.
 In the embedded mode you have the ability to share and exchange data between the nodes of
embedded Geode, but you must either know of the other nodes, or use the Multicast protocol
to discover the other embedded nodes.  There are other differences when it comes to security
options, WAN replication, load balancing and complexity that should be considered when choosing
a topology.  
 The basic rules of thumb for using the Geode embedded topology are:
 <li>Is the Geode database used to support specific application(s) and the data  would
not need to be shared with applications that do not have a Geode embedded database?</li>
