    What are the license limits of FDS Express?

    Graeme Harker Level 1
      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?

              Hello,

              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 ?

              Thanks,

                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 devices.
