We currently have APPOLO ADVANTAGE 8 CORE license. We were planning to have it on single server, but also like to know if clustering is supported as this will increase the performance as we expect a number of concurrent users 200 to 300 may.
We have some questions regarding server and license configuration:
Is there any document clearly explaining the recormmended architecture?

In a cluster, you need one license per node because each node contains one APOLLO server.
"8 Cores" means you can have up to 8 cores (CPU) on the server (node) where APOLLO is installed.
So, with an 8 core license, you can have only one node. You cannot split the license.
It is possible to set up a cluster with only one node but you will not have performance improvements. But, with that configuration you can add as much nodes as you want later without modifying the configuration. You just need additionnal licenses (one license per node).

Thanks for the clarification. Would you mind to confirm if this is the case for the latest version Apollo 16.6?
Just wondering if high availability can be acheived with the '8 core license'.
Is it possible to have two nodes (two servers in different availability zones) with 4 cores using same license?

One 8 core license is different than two 4 cores licenses (because you could potentially implement two APOLLO instances). I suggest you to contact your sales representative and explain the situation.
