You can't "start" s4 nodes remotely. You must start them by passing the zookeeper connection
string so they can bootstrap to a zookeeper cluster. How to start them is specific to your
setup and infrastructure, a basic way would be by scripting and using ssh.

Not sure what you mean by "gradle download". Normally you would package the app locally, then
make the package available somewhere. Easiest way is on a shared file system (like NFS) but
you can also make it available through http (static file serving). When deploying, you just
specify the location of the package and nodes will install the app automatically.

Hope this helps,
