Two of more Squeezebox Touches or Transporter SE's, can they run from the same server?
How do you handle multiple clients on the network?
How can this integrate with Savant or Crestron via the server?

Several SB players on one server is very common, I have four. You can have dozens of SB players on one server.
Whether your router and host computer can handle that many is another issue.
The only real limiting factor is your bandwidth and computer.
What do you mean "how to handle multiple clients"?
Can't help you with Savant & Crestron.

The Clients are basically managed by the Squeezebox or the Logitech Media Server Software on your Host Computer.
As long as you connect the Player to the Same Network on which the Host Computer resides, it will find it.
I have had come across individuals who have had 6 clients on the Same Server namely Squeezebox Duets. This particular customer had 6 Receiver's hooked upto the same server on whose network the players are connect to.

I am running 8 Duets on a whole house system with all of the speakers home runed to my basement theatre cabinet. Does anyone make a rack mountable unit to nicely enclose 8 duets. Currently they are zipped tied together in 2 stacks of 4.
Does Logitech have any plans to make a 4, 6, or 8, integrated Duet unit that could be used for a whole house system? The flexibility of the duet is great but linking several of them is clumsy.

I think running wires throughout your house just to distribute audio when you already want to have network in any room these days is really clumsy...
But that's OT.
What I really want to say is: The server and easily manage up to dozens of players, I've run at least 10 or so in parallel (hard- and software players) without issues.
The one thing you wan to take care of is to NOT connect your server using WiFi but to have a wired connection between it and the router if you want to use many devices. The reason is that WiFi really suffers whenever you have a lot of connections going over it and if your server is connected through WiFi you need to run actually TWO connections on the WiFi network for EACH player so this will give your performance a dramatic hit.
Using WiFI for players is generally fine (unless you have so many that you hit the limits of your WiFi router) but the server should be wired.
