Term for SQL Servers Having *Multiple Instances*

We have a few WIndows server that have more than 1 SQL instance installed.
Is there a correct term for such SQL Servers?

Multiple instances. Can't think of what else to call them. Multi-instance if you prefer.

My unofficial name for such servers is "Screwed". :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

You can refer to SQL Servers with more than one SQL instance installed as "multiple instances" or "multi-instance" servers. There doesn't seem to be a specific official term beyond these descriptors.

Thank you :slightly_smiling_face:
