Multiple connections, happening roughly within a 500 milliseconds timespan, can be called a concurrent connection.
So when looking at new server hardware, you have to think hard, if you will actually hit a certain concurrent connection limit at some point.
So lets say, you publish a campaign in a magazine, promoting a special offer through a single page website.
To calculate the possible concurrent connections, you would need to know roughly how many readers the magazine has.
The chance that all of them reading and visiting at the same time is almost impossible.
So lets say the magazine has 50.000 readers and roughly 1% hit your website at the same time.
In that case you would need a server setup that can handle 500 concurrent users.
These things are more important, when building Mobile Apps. With a popular App you can easily hit those concurrent user limits. This is where cloud solutions become really handy and help to level the traffic requirements. A good example is Parse.
The chance of your server hitting a concurrent connection limit is often not as critical as hitting a RAM limit :)

I am a full-stack developer. My expertise include:
I love programming, design and know my way around server architecture as well. I would never feel complete, with one of these missing.
I have a broad range of interests, that’s why I constantly dive into new technologies and expand my knowledge where ever required. Technologies are evolving fast and I enjoy using the latest.
Apart from that, I am a peace loving guy who tries to have people around him that think the same. I truly believe in the principle: “If you help someone, someone will help you, when you need it."
