can someone help me figure out what the 2-socket / 1-socket means? Is a 2-socket server faster than 1-socket ?
Thanks.

2 socket would mean you can have additional processor, so depending on the cpu's you choose to install, it would be faster.  If you're going to be doing virtualization though, the licensing for vmware charges per physical processor so you would pay more to license a server with 2 cpu's vs. 1.

so the socket here is different from the "socket" by TCP or programming ?
