Node Execution Locality refers to the location in which an instance of a Node on a Workflow will execute.
This is the default Node Execution Locality and refers to a Node that is executed within the Flowgear Cloud. Certain execution restrictions imposed on Nodes that run In-Cloud. In-Cloud execution should be used whenever possible as it is the most performant locality and does not create additional points of failure.
Nodes that execute at a DropPoint do not have any execution restrictions imposed on them other than a Workflow-defined timeout and response Property sizes. For performance and resilience reasons, a DropPoint should only be used for a Node Connection when the resource that will be accessed by the Node is not Internet-exposed. Typically, this would be used to connect to data sources are not exposed through a company firewall.
