It really depends on what you prefer to maintain.  It is pretty-much
equivalent in terms of performance.  If you have only one instance,
then you get a shared idle server pool, which could save a little
memory.  But with two instances, you can tailor the necessary modules
for each server, which could save memory as well.  Two instances is
probably a little more resilient, in that bringing down one
(accidentally or deliberately) will not affect the other.  But it is
probably a little more of a hassel to configure.
