As I know, In TFS2010, One Build Controller serves One Project Collection. And, ideally one build server should have One build controller into it.

However, as per the link below- we can install mutiple build controller in a single build box.

Can two or more build controller can run at a same time.

Because the link suggests that, we need to switch between controllers ....

Is it that, we can use one controller at a time.

According to this author: sounds like you can. Except that, according to him:

If you want to run builds on both Build Service instances concurrently, you’ll want to take steps to prevent resource contention like moving the working directories for the Agent on one of the instances to a separate hard disk. Even then you may encounter serious performance degradation if two instances of MSTest are invoked at the same time.
