One benefit of instances is that when you create a linked server connection to a database in another instance (of the same machine) then data does not have to travel through a network and the results are typically fast.

I dont think we need to create linked servers for instances running on same server. or do we? we can access the data using four part notation. [instance Name].database.owner.object

I tried querying using your suggestion on a couple of instances on one of our machines. I was not successful. Maybe I am missing something.

My understanding of an instance is that it acts as if it is another server without actually needing to buy another server. Thus I assume all the permissions/checkpoints you normally have in place to access data from another box still apply to instances the reside on the same disk as your reference database.
