Subject Re: CloudSolrClient preferred over LBHttpSolrClient

Also, since CloudSolrClient is ZK aware it is notified when any Solr
instances go up and down so it will take the appropriate action. Also,
when indexing CloudSolrClient will send updates to the correct leader,
reducing the hops for indexing documents.

Short form: CloudSolrClient is preferred over LBHttpSolrClient.

Best,
Erick
