No. Data flows through Ignite in-memory and is not stored in a Heroku database. However, users can build flows that stages data in Heroku for various reasons. Under any scenario, data never goes through Cyber Group Ignite cloud services.
For multiple data sources, does a customer need more than one Salesforce Connect license?
No. Users can create a single Entity Data Model that exposes objects from numerous data sources while Salesforce Connect sees it as a single resource connection.
