Hi,

You can have up to 8 vCPU perhost or up to 256 vCPU per cluster. Please refers to related Configuration Maximums document for more details.

Hi,

It could be both or combined among several VM configurations (e.g. 2x 1vCPU FT VMs, 1x 2vCPU FT VM & 1x 4 vCPU FT VM)  either it acts as Active FT VM or Passive FT VM.

In a cluster, you can also protect up to 98 VMs with FT.

Hi,

Please read my previous post carefully. I said "... or up to 256 vCPU per cluster". Please verify it on related vSphere Configuration Maximums document as well.
