There are no particular "advantages" either way, so I'd look at the disadvantages:

Single server:  needs to be high spec (i.e. expensive) as the systems running together can chew up a lot of resource

Mulitple servers:  Twice the hardware to look after

To add to Nic's excellent points, if one of the two applications goes rogue (e.g. using up all CPU cycles), the other one is affected as well, which wouldn't be happening if the applications were on two separate machines.
