SolrCloud eliminates the need to use the shards parameter, so
CloudSolrServer does not expose the actual Solr instances.  You *can*
use the shards parameter, but typically it is done differently than
traditional Solr.

CloudSolrServer thinks mostly in terms of collections, not cores.  There
is a setDefaultCollection method on the server object, or you can do

You can query certain shards of a collection or multiple collections,
without ever knowing the host/port/core combinations:

There are also collection aliases on the server side, which let you
access one or more real collections with a "virtual" collection name.
