Small businesses usually require more than one server if they intend to run multiple services such as a file server, web server, voice over IP server or Microsoft Exchange Server for example. "Virtualization" (US term) or "Virtualisation" if you're in the UK, would allow all services to run on one high spec server with it's processor, memory and other resources shared amongst all services. You can run Linux and Windows servers at the same time on the same box.
