Hi Fabio,

thinking about the cons, Hot Rod can intelligently pick the server where 
should a given key reside, to reduce the number of hops (therefore, 
latency). RemoteCache does not expose any way to route according to some 
key; feel free to file a feature request in Infinispan JIRA.

Note that in order to reduce the number of round-trips, Infinispan 9.2 
will support true-async operations: Previously the putAsync et all just 
moved the execution to different thread, since 9.2.0.CR2 it sends the 
request to the wire right await and the response is received through a 
CompletableFuture. At this moment multiple requests will need a distinct 
TCP connection for each concurrent operation, but this limitation is 
likely to be removed in 9.3. The goal is to let you write the batch down 
one-by-one using async API and just wait for all the operations to complete.

I know this won't help for all the types of operation (a lack of 
client-side API sometimes forces OGM to use get() + CAS in a loop).

I am not trying to talk you out of the remote execution API, just 
spreading news about the emerging alternatives.
