What are the license limits of FDS Express?

Level 2
Level 2
I understand that FDS Express is max 1cpu, no cluster and
it's ok to use it in production.

Are there any hidden hard limits to it's use? For example is
there a hard-wired maximum number of "connections", number of
RemoteObject requests or messages/second or anything?

FDS Express does not have any connection limitations. With
FDS Express you can run no more 1 CPU per application (this allows
multiple applications per CPU) with no connection limitations. As
your application requires more than 1 CPU for reliability or
scalability we have a mid-level FDS offering.

So what can you do with a 1-cpu FDS Enterprise license that
you can't do with a zero-cost FDS Express license?

My question is three fold:

1. Does RemoteObject usage stays under FDS Express license ?

2. If we have multi-core Intel CPU (one dual core cpu for
instance), can we legally use FDS express ?

3. Clustering: Is that application-level clustering or OS
level clustering you mentioned ?

Here's the relevant section from the 2.0.1 license.

3.1.3 Adobe Flex Data Services Express License. This Section
3.1.3 applies only if Licensee has obtained a valid Adobe Flex Data
Services Express Software license. With respect to each unique
application created by Licensee, Adobe grants Licensee a license to
install and use such unique application and the Adobe Flex Data
Services Express Software as Production Software on a Per-CPU
basis; provided that Licensee shall not: (a) install, use or access
such unique application and/or the Adobe Flex Data Services Express
Software on more than one CPU, (b) cluster any CPUs, and/or (c) use
load balancing. For avoidance of doubt, Licensee shall not deploy
any unique application on multiple disconnected single CPUs,
including without limitation, on kiosks and other such
