Single core CPUs may be rare but single core VMs probably
represent the dominant number of deployments out there as it's much
more efficient scheduler wise to go with more single CPUs than fewer
multi CPU VMs.

Not that I have any problem running multithreaded apps on a single
CPU, I do it all the time. It is kind of unconventional using a
load balancer to spread load specifically for optimal hypervisor
scheduling though(traffic is load balanced regardless).
