Please advice whether Installing 2x Server in the same server will get the good performance or in a separate server will give the good performance ?

If so, you may need to add more ram, as each socket has its own bank unless server can use memory pooling. You can offload tasks to specific cpu's depending on the o/s, which would improve performance under certain circumstances, but I would have a word with your IBM sales/support team.
