Currently we claim to support IgniteRDD in two modes: standalone and
embedded. Standalone means there is a separately running Ignite cluster,
and Spark start client node(s) to interact with it. In embedded node

started embedded into Spark executors.

The latter case doesn't really work, mainly because the lifecycle of Spark
executors is not very predictable - Spark can start and stop them while
application is running. In case Ignite cluster is used to store data (which
is usually the case), this causes unnecessary rebalancing or even
unexpected data loss.

I propose to deprecate and eventually discontinue the embedded mode.
Luckily, standalone mode is the default one, so we can simply print out a
clear warning if one switches to embedded mode, and also mention this in
the docs.

Thoughts? If there are no objections, I will create a ticket and make the
