Are there any disadvantages in running EC as a WAR inside tomcat?


For various (mostly political) reasons it looks like we will have to run
our ES nodes (currently just one) inside a dedicated Tomcat instance using
Transport-Wares NodeServlet.
I have an opportunity for making a case for standard ES deployment (as it
comes with embedded netty) is there anything in your experience including
performance that will be negatively affected by running it as tomcat

Thank you,
