SharePoint 2016 Deployment Options

SharePoint 2016 Deployment Options

Before SharePoint 2016 (2007 – 2013) we had two following deployment option:

  1. Single Server
  2. Multi Server

SharePoint 2016 Introduced a new Deployment options named MinRole. In this new Topology there are six following server roles:

  • Web Front End :
  • Single Server Farm: To Provision all the services on a Single Server, similar to standalone installation in previous versions. However, it requires dedicated SQL Server
  • Search
  • Application
  • Distributed Cache
  • Custom: if you do not want to have just one MinRole on a server then you can assign it this Role. This would allow you to assign any service on this server

You can install all these roles on dedicated servers in a Farm or can combine using Custom Role. While running configuration Wizard you will have to choose an option from this new wizard screen accordingly
