I can not seem to find any information regarding what a 2-way, 3-way, or 4-way server actually is. I am purchasing a few servers, and looking at the specifications, they list Intel's Dual-Core products, and talk about specifics such as 2-way. This one should be easy for a lot of you experts!

Excellent! We used to refer to this as SMP or multiprocessor system a few years ago.
