1. Yes its possible. You can have a default instance and a named instance. You have to install SSAS as a new instance.

You just have to simply install another instance of SSAS.

2. By the way, It is not a good practice :) to install the both on the same server.

I dont think we have any limitation beyond 2014.

installation both in a single server is not recommended by Microsoft?

Does it's impact performance of the server?

If both are actually used on the server then its difficult to manage hardware configuration, because one setting may or may not optimal for the other one.

Basically organizations either choose - Tabular and Multi Dimensional, both are used for the same purpose with few differences.

E.g. - For tabular you need large amount of RAM as queries will be executed in the RAM, internally all the data from the tables loaded in the RAM and then the query executes and returns the result.

If your hardware is really really good then Multi-instance can scale-up by installing multiple server instances on the same Server. Basically it requires lot of testing with real time data.

Microsoft say that we can have tabular and multi dimensional on the same server. Read more through the below url-
